Washington: US Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday condemned Venezuela`s "unacceptable" use of force against anti-government protesters, and declined to respond to an offer from Caracas for bilateral talks.
"The government`s use of force and judicial intimidation against citizens and political figures, who are exercising a legitimate right to protest, is unacceptable and will only increase the likelihood of violence," Kerry said in a statement. "This is not how democracies behave."
