Pence, Santos strike deal allowing Colombian avocados into U.S. market

"We need to push the political and economic situation to an extreme so that democracy can be restored as soon as possible in Venezuela". "In both Colombia and Argentina, Pence stated that, while the United States will always put American interests at the forefront, "'America first' does not mean America alone".

Pence said he expects a "breakthrough" soon on commodity agreements with Argentina that may include products such as USA pork, Argentine beef and lemons.

But he expressed hope a "peaceable solution" could be found on Venezuela.

His latest target happens to be Venezuela, a Caribbean nation now embroiled in bitter domestic strife that neither the administration of President Nicolas Maduro nor the opposition seem seriously interested in resolving through creative and peaceful initiatives.

Caracas condemned the comment.

On Monday, Vice President Pence told reporters the story of a grandmother who had explained to him that her grandchildren struggle just to buy a piece of bread, waking early to get a ticket and stand in line for hours to do so. We also know that Pence's claims about when he learned of Michael Flynn's work as a foreign agent clearly aren't true.

The country, U.S, had also not ruled out military option.

"A failed state such as Venezuela's threatens the safety and prosperity in the entire hemisphere", he said during a joint press conference with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos.

And Wenger again rejected comparisons with the situation Diego Costa is experiencing with Chelsea . "It is better for the season and for our psychological comfort as managers", he said.

Washington has already imposed unilateral sanctions on Maduro and almost two dozen of his officials.

In the past three weeks, a half dozen opposition mayors have been removed or arrested while the new constitutional assembly has removed the outspoken chief prosecutor and threatened to target the opposition-controlled congress. Trump's comments on Friday have fuelled long-standing accusations that the USA is preparing a military attack.

"We have many options for Venezuela, but the..."

"The vice president probably is a person that I've never heard say any words like that in a private or public setting", said Scaramucci.

The coalition rejected 'the use of force or threats of applying the same in Venezuela on the part of any country.' But the coalition's statement didn't directly mention Trump's remarks.

Although he blames Maduro for destroying the oil-rich economy, he still reveres the late Hugo Chavez and has no faith an opposition-led government would improve his welfare.

She emphasized that the United States was an important market for this fruit, since, in 2016, it had imported about 2 billion dollars of this product, 90% of which was produced by Mexico.
