The United States has received numerous conflicting reports regarding the welfare and whereabouts of the wrongfully detained “CITGO 6” in Venezuela, and we insist that the former Maduro regime provide an immediate update on their condition.

As we stated on July 8, the United States condemns the wrongful detention and treatment of these U.S. persons at the hands of an illegitimate regime. We continue to demand the immediate release of the CITGO 6.
