Kyiv: The US national flag was removed on Thursday from a flagpole on the territory of the embassy of this country in Caracas.
This is reported by the Venezuelan television channel TVV.
Earlier on Thursday, US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo said that all employees of the US diplomatic mission in Venezuela had left the country.
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro announced the severance of diplomatic relations with the United States on January 23. The reason was the fact that Washington recognized as acting head of state opposition leader Juan Guaido.
