"As President Trump said just a few days ago, we have many options for Venezuela", he said.

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence spoke on the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, during a news conference in Colombia on Sunday (August 12).

The government of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has long made calls for peace, dialogue, and negotiated solutions to resolve an ongoing crisis stemming from right-wing opposition protests that have claimed over 120 lives.

Late socialist leader Hugo Chavez frequently staged military exercises during his 14-year rule, many of which involved defending the country against mock foreign armies.

In both countries, we expect to hear more about the current crisis in Venezuela and how other Latin American nations should help to restore democracy in that country. During Q&A, Santos said that he showed Pence data about how aerial fumigation of coca crops was ineffective, and that the Colombian strategy to reduce cultivation would focus in equal parts on forced eradications and alternative development crop substitutions.

CIA Director Mike Pompeo said Trump, by raising the prospect of possible military action, was trying 'to give the Venezuelan people hope and opportunity to create a situation where democracy can be restored'.

"The regime is experiencing change right now and what we're witnessing is Venezuela is collapsing into dictatorship".

"I will tell you, Peter, that I take issue with the fact that many in the media are spending more time criticizing how the President addressed the issue yesterday."

During a joint press conference in Argentina with President Mauricio Macri, Vice President Mike Pence said the Trump administration wants to help protect democracy in the embattled nation of Venezuela, while downplaying the possibility US military intervention.

Last June, Colombia's Hass avocado exports exceeded 25 million dollars.

The topic of U.S. intervention with Venezuela arose again with Argentina President Mauricio Macri. Pence is also set to deliver a speech at the Buenos Aires stock exchange focused on economic ties between the two countries as part of a six-day visit to Latin America. This will be the first time the G20 comes to South America; Mexico hosted in 2012.

Pence's last stop on the four-nation tour will take him to Panama, which saw the last US military invasion in Latin America, the 1989 "Operation Just Cause" to remove military dictator Manuel Noriega. Pence said he believed "we're going to see these extremist voices on the far right and on the far left marginalized as they should be as Americans come together around our shared values".
