Moscow believes the United States may launch a military intervention in Venezuela disregarding the position of Latin American countries, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at a joint press conference following talks with Venezuelan Executive Vice President Delcy Rodriguez on Friday, ONA reports citing TASS.

According to the Russian top diplomat, apart from several US allies, there is not a single country that supports plans of a military intervention in Venezuela. "Everyone, including Venezuela’s neighboring countries, has made statements saying they neither support nor share this approach," Lavrov pointed out.

"I must admit that given the current US administration’s ways, everything is possible," he stressed. "I don’t rule out that the US administration may once again take actions in defiance of all international norms," he added.
