"Maduro from power", Patrushev said.

Abrams, speaking on Tuesday ahead of a Security Council meeting on Venezuela sought by the United States, also told reporters that Washington would impose more sanctions on Caracas this week and next to bring additional pressure on the government of President Nicolas Maduro, whose legitimacy Washington has challenged.

Mr de Filippos explained: "Remember that next year we will have presidential elections in the US".

Maduro has accused the U.S. of staging a coup against him over efforts to deliver humanitarian aid to his country amid widespread hunger and malnutrition.

He claimed the build-up of U.S. troops in neighbouring countries suggests the Trump administration is "preparing a military invasion on an independent state".

"The transfer of American special operations forces to Puerto Rico, the landing of U.S. forces in Colombia and other facts indicate the Pentagon is reinforcing its troops in the region in order to use them in an operation to remove ..."

Abrams says that "the solution to the humanitarian situation is to get a government that works for rather than against the people of Venezuela".

At least four people were killed during the weekend after violence broke out on the Venezuelan borders with Colombia and Brazil over the attempted delivery of aid into the country. "Hence, such a reaction, the refusal to accept cargo from the aggressor country and the support of their president".

Violent clashes between security forces and a US -backed opposition attempt on Saturday to bring aid into the economically devastated country left nearly 300 wounded and at least three protesters dead near the Brazilian border.

Pence announced new sanctions against Venezuelan officials for their role in blocking the so-called humanitarian aid from entering the country over the weekend, as the USA continues to ratchet up pressure on the government of President Nicolás Maduro.
