"Basic services on behalf of their constituents once as well is free of the Madero regime. It's Cuban enforcers. And it's thugs and censorship is ended and political. Prisoners are freed the time. We'll have arrived to prepare for free elections. But the time to join a free debate about the future is now, and it must include young basis for this regime. Tries to silence them as well. If you want to be part of your country's future and not just it's passed. It cannot be imposed by force when they sued except that it must act solely as a democratic political party and seek the votes of citizens feel actions solely through argument and debate then as well, we'll be well on the way to democracy. How will the United States react to Chevy STA participation and what I called politics that are fully inclusive. I can speak from my own experience. I spent years in the nineteen eighties working to prevent a violent FM L N assisted by Cuba. And Russia, violent takeover of El Salvador. But when the FM L N one free elections in two thousand nine and again in two thousand fourteen and in the latter election two thousand fourteen under the leadership of a former. Rebel leader, the United States respected and accepted that outcome. And indeed continued our foreign aid program. We did not we did not pick L Salvador's president in those elections. And obviously we will not pick who is president in Venezuela. We want to see all Venezuelans deciding the fate of their country in free elections instead of all the key decisions being made by someone who stolen election in two thousand eighteen and rules by brutality and exclusion as well. And needs a peaceful. Transition shared among all it's people between friends and neighbors in every community. You are all in this together. And your politics must reflect that fact. Second the military in that's huger Venezuela. What is the role of military? The armed forces would hold a place of responsibility in society, and without being involved in politics would represent and protect the security of the country. Then as well deserve to be protected by professional military institution. And not have their leaders rely on armed gangs or on foreign powers who sent thousands of soldiers or intelligence agents to surveillance and abuse and imprison patriotic Venezuelan military officers, and and listed men and women that is well, we'll need a truly professional and well trained armed force to rebuild the country and guarantee its security. Interim president Widodo has reiterated multiple times that a transition to a secure and democratic country will require the support of military officers. And that's what we believe that as well as military and security officers need to be stronger, better paid and trained and armed and ready to face the challenge of criminals who traffic in drugs and persons and the challenge of protecting the nation's thousands of miles of land and sea borders. And protecting Venezuela from dangers foreign and domestic. Let's be candid the country will need to confront the deeds of some who have so badly abused their office or their position that there needs to be an accounting. The national assembly is working on these issues now and with great care. These are not new issues. Many democratic transitions have had to grapple with the issues of Amnesty's protections for former officials we saw this in Poland and elsewhere in eastern Europe after the fall of communism in South Africa after part. In El Salvador after the civil war in Chile Argentina after military rule, then as Waylon we'll have to work this out, we in the United States recognize this, and as we have done in all all those cases, I mentioned it is the intention of the United States to respect the agreement made among Venezuelans as part of the transition to democracy to extent consistent with applicable laws. Third is a question of free inclusive economy like all questions about the future is willa. The structure of the economy will have to be debated by all Venezuelans represented in the national assembly decisions about the economy cannot be made by one man or a small group whose goal is to steal resources will ward sycophants and a bubble use the money to same power. They'll be hard decisions to make and there will still many sacrifices in the coming years. The transition will not be easy and some ways let's be honest, this situation even get worse before it improves. The Venezuelan economy has contracted by nearly seventy seven zero percent because of the mismanagement and corruption of the current regime. The currency has been really reduced to worthless. An example, an example of hyper inflation that is going to be studied in university economic departments a century from now country will need everything infrastructure new health system. School's the rebuilding of the agricultural sector list is long it'll take time. Economic recovery. Cannot be cheap overnight not even in a country with huge oil reserves. But interim president Dell in the national assembly are committed as they've made clear plump i-it's to build an economy that works for all Venezuelans, and the international community is committed to helping that succeed. That means that economy that uses the country's natural wealth to benefit all the people. Not just a few who happen to hold political power. That means an economy that truly provides for the most vulnerable members of society. It means a stable currency that allows families to plan for the future. It means economy that is open to the world and embraces the opportunities the world offers. It means an agricultural sector that can again provide for the basic needs of Venezuelan by allowing farmers to plant and harvest without government control. But with the government providing much of the infrastructure that silicates production, Ken. He prosperous again and can climb out of despair into which has fallen when the rules are fair. The laws are just and enforced and treat all citizens equally when corruption is punished and a free press can't expose corruption when private property is protected when labor is fairly rewarded. This isn't magic. These are the basis for economic growth. These three components of the democratic transition and inclusive democratic government professional security forces and free and inclusive economy are all possible and are all key ingredients to rebuilding Venezuela. Interim president Widodo and the national assembly have begun the critical work that will lead. Venezuela back from ruin to liberty and prosperity. We support his leadership fully and everyone who is committed to a democratic future. Join forces to make this new Venezuela a reality as quickly as possible. I believe what believe are said is true. People that love freedom will in the end be free people that love freedom will end free. The United States will not waver in its support for feed him in Venezuela. And we are certain we will see again Venezuela that democratic prosperous reconnected to the world. We are certain the corruption and incompetence repression brutality that have marked Madero years will be replaced by Venezuela that is recovering its place in its region, this hemisphere and the world the United States wishes to be Venezuela's partner. This great effort, and we are confident that Venezuelans will in the end be free. Thank you very much. U s Representative for Venezuela Elliot Abrams.

We need to unify the country to have a smooth stationing to set at career transition government on quote for free and fair election. But also we need to understand that we are facing the worst humanitarian crisis tire history. I'm for that overcomes that crisis. We need to come together as Venezuelans all Venezuelans are necessary to to rebuild our country and to overcome the worst humanitarian crisis that we have ever facing isn't history. But also is a government that that needs to understand that need to work with different political views has to be has to be paying for listen different opinions and respect them. And also he's a government that has to be governed by the rule of law respecting also human right under democratic principles on also understand need to work together with different. Public branches in Venezuela working with national working with a military force working with she'll system in order to build Venezuela. Most important thing in my view is a government that needs to result the humanitarian crisis to overcome the power team Venezuela, and that will be the primary focus stopped the offering Venezuela's because the crisis is taking consolidation. Your political affiliation. You have a problem. I mean. They'll ask you are you chubby. So are you friend is acting the time country without you know, without taking it goes eight. Political affiliations. So we need to understand that. Then you government has to resolve the humanitarian crisis on a Saint time start working to to overcome poverty minutes. That's the way it was. Rear incredibly important point. Just the crisis doesn't it's not based on political affiliation. This is a crisis that affects all Venezuelans across the board. And as you said this a fully inclusive government is special Representative was just laid out has to include everybody across the political spectrum..

He's an ambassador without an embassy Venezuelan diplomat Carlos Vecchio, vacuous part of the diplomatic corps, representing one Guido the self-declared interim president of Venezuela. This is not an easy gig for Mr. Vecchio Venezuela's. Embattled President Nicolas Maduro closed down his country's Washington embassy in January. So Vecchio is working in borrowed office space while he waits to get the keys to the embassy. He told me he's trying to get control of other Venezuelan assets for Guido's administration. I asked him for some examples Bank accounts, we need to protect that gold reserves. We need to protect that also public companies or corporations such as citgo we need to protect that as well. So that's what we are doing. And what is your concern that the Maduro regime might? Just try and plunder all that before. They get pushed out of power. Yes. Absolutely. I mean, they have this droid all what we have is any of that legal though. Because I mean as much as you want to recognize one Guido is the president you're in a constitutional crisis two people arguing that they're in power. So I mean right now is it legal? And does it make sense to be doing this preemptive grab of Venezuela's assets? We have assets that belonged to the Republic, I represent the Republican working on that are not also we have probably entities which are on their legal structures that we need to comply with certain regulations in each country on we need to do that. So we are needed government. We need to take on troll. Or does it to preserve them for direct instruction Venezuelan to help them and William equal to stop, you know, our suffering. Yeah. There is enormous suspicion of the corruption around nNcholas Maduro, especially among the military leaders one Guido, however, his offered those leaders amnesty. Do they deserve amnesty that amnesty law does not include crime against humanity?

Mr. Vecchio, you're also bringing your own sort of pressure by attending President Trump state of the union address tonight as a guest Senator Marco Rubio, what are you hoping to hear from Trump in particular when it comes to the possibility of US military intervention, are you hoping to hear Trump present that as a viable option for me? It's an honor being there, a recognition of the coach of our people who have been fighting in minutes to recover, our democracy, and I'm expecting that he will ratify why he cops said publicly he is tense with the Venezuelan people in order to recover our democracy on this is not a fight between the United States over. Jim. This is a fight between the free world under dictatorship of Louisville which is. Controlled by what about military intervention, though, because that has been raised as a possibility that the US might send troops. Would you want to hear that would that disappoint you or were you? We haven't discussed that I go weak. Don't get to that point. I hope we can't just resolve this peacefully. There's also the Cuba. Venezuela connection. I want to ask you about mister Vecchio national security adviser John Bolton as you may know has been especially vocal about this. The problem that makes it particularly cute in Venezuela is the control exercised by Cuban security forces. You know, in many respects that actually intimidate the Venezuelan military. It's not an accident that around the hemisphere people now, call the country Cuba's Walea because the Cubans are so much a part of the Maduro regime report suggests that in tonight's address, President Trump is gonna discuss Cuba and suggest the regime in power. There is sort of the power behind president Madero. What about you? Do you? See the same connection. Cuba is in Venezuela. Cuba. Is taking the season in Minnesota jointly with my Ludo, and we need to liberate Venezuela normally from the chief of motorboat, but also from the Cuban regime. I mean, no doubt that Cubans are in Venezuela and supporting my d'oro, but I mean hasn't been corruption and mismanagement at the center of Venezuela's crisis is pointing the finger at Cuba, really missing the point. I think we'll be both. I mean at the end of the day, the people are with us. And also we want that the military force will back the new president of Venezuela. The interim president of Venezuela. I'm curious Carlos Vecchio. Do you have friends or relatives who support Madero I had just few? But I used to have many family members, you know, close to they can be smoking put in some way, but not anymore when you have conversations with them. I mean, how do those conversations go? I mean, how do they get? Or are you able to reason with one another just I want to keep their relationship with them? We don't discuss about politics. Okay. And I think they realized that the situation cannot continue CDs Suelas twenty three days before nobody knew network onto who west white though. And now, he's the most popular person immense.
