In an interview with CNN International, AS/COA Vice President Eric Farnsworth discussed the situation in Venezuela a day after the head of the country's National Assembly, Juan Guaidó, administered the oath of office to himself to become interim president. Farnsworth discussed the position of the United States as well as the role of the Venezuelan military. “The security forces are the arbiter here depending on what they decide to do. Do they remain loyal to the [Maduro] regime or do they switch their allegiance to Guaidó?”
