The Latest: Venezuela rejects Trump talk of military option

The Latest on Venezuela’s political crisis (all times local):

12:25 p.m.

Venezuela’s government is energetically rejecting U.S. President Donald Trump’s talk of a potential “military option” to resolve the country’s political crisis, calling it the most egregious act of belligerence against Venezuela in a century and a threat to Latin America’s stability.

The response came in a statement read Saturday by Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza in a meeting with foreign diplomats. They included Lee McClenny, the head of the U.S. embassy in Caracas.
