El presidente de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump, designó a James Story como embajador extraordinario y plenipotenciario en Venezuela, señaló oficialmente la Casa Blanca en un comunicado.

Story se desempeñó antes como encargado de Negocios de la Embajada de EEUU en Caracas y, hasta ahora, encargado de Negocios de la Embajada virtual, desde Bogotá, tras la salida de sus funcionarios de Venezuela durante el primer trimestre de 2019.

Sin embargo, EEUU no tiene un diplomático que ocupe el cargo de embajador desde 2010, cuando por diferencias con el mandatario fallecido Hugo Chávez hubo rupturas de las relaciones, aunque no las comerciales.

En días recientes, el secretario del Departamento de Estado, Mike Pompeo, había adelantado el interés de EEUU de retomar sus funciones en su sede diplomática de Caracas.

No obstante, se desconoce cuándo se ejecutaría efectivamente esta medida.

A continuación le presentamos el texto original del comunicado de la Casa Blanca:
