Peaceful solution to Venezuela crisis is possible -U.S. VP Pence

Aug 13 (Reuters) - Venezuela is on the path to dictatorship, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence said on Sunday, but a peaceful solution to unrest and political turmoil in the socialist country is possible.

The United States will not accept the emergence of a dictator and there may soon be new sanctions against Venezuela, said Pence, speaking from Cartagena, Colombia, where he is kicking off a trip to several Latin American countries. (Reporting by Julia Symmes Cobb; Editing by Chris Reese)
