Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has warned his US counterpart Mike Pompeo against any American interference, including using force, in Venezuela which is facing a major leadership crisis.

The Russian foreign ministry said in a statement yesterday, that Lavrov is ready for talks regarding the Venezuelan issue in line with UN principles. The remarks came after US President Donald Trump reaffirmed earlier this month that military intervention in Venezuela was an option.

His comment came in the wake of rising international pressure on the embattled head of state Nicolas Maduro to step down. Maduro is facing a challenge from opposition leader Juan Guaido who declared himself acting president in January.
