Luis Almagro, leader of the Organization of American States (OAS), is not ruling out military intervention to overthrow Venezuela‘s president.
At a press conference, Almagro said only restoring democracy in Venezuela can solve the crisis and that military intervention cannot be ruled out.
The OAS secretary-general had been speaking to Venezuelan migrants in Colombia.
At least 1.5 million people have fled the political and economic crisis, putting a strain on neighbouring countries.
