The following is attributable to Acting Spokesperson Tom Babington:

U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Administrator Mark Green met with the Dutch Ambassador to the United States, Henne Schuwer, to discuss how the United States and The Netherlands can alleviate the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Venezuela. Administrator Green and Ambassador Schuwer committed to continue working together to help the Venezuelan people. The two exchanged ideas on how best to collaborate on pre-propositioning civilian humanitarian assistance on the island of Curaçao, a component country of the Kingdom of The Netherlands, to address severe shortages of food and medicine in Venezuela.

The United States remains committed to delivering humanitarian assistance for the people of Venezuela, and to support efforts led by Venezuelans to restore democracy in their homeland.
