Pompeo released a statement Thursday, soon after the last diplomats were reported to have left. On Thursday, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo confirmed the last remaining American diplomats have left the country. He said they would continue to carry on their "mission from other locations, where they will continue to help manage the flow of humanitarian assistance to the Venezuelan people".

On 7 March, almost the whole territory of Venezuela was swept by a blackout, caused by what the national electricity supplier Corpoelec called sabotage at a the Guri dam.

Morales, who is on a visit to Greece, said meddling in the domestic affairs of another country never bodes well.

Maduro tried Tuesday to send a group of his relatives to Colombia, but Colombian authorities stopped them at the border, saying they do not recognize Maduro as president and will now allow his family to flee the discomfort suffered by other Venezuelans.
