According to Reuters US official said the diplomats were flown out in a civilian charter aircraft.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has announced that all U.S. diplomats assigned to Venezuela have departed, in an exit the State Department calls "temporary". On Thursday, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo confirmed the last remaining American diplomats have left the country.

Pompeo said the diplomatic staff would continue from outside Venezuela to work for its future, help manage the flow of humanitarian assistance and support those "bravely resisting tyranny".

China offered today to help Venezuela restore its power grid, after President Nicolas Maduro accused USA counterpart Donald Trump of cyber "sabotage" that plunged the South American country into its worst blackout on record.

Pompeo released a statement Thursday, soon after the last diplomats were reported to have left.

As of late 2018, the USA has revoked more than 600 Venezuelan visas.

"We look forward to resuming our presence once the transition to democracy begins". Despite this, he said the US will continue to stand with self-proclaimed interim President Juan Guaido. State Department spokesman Robert Palladino told reporters that the US has revoked more than 600 visas from Venezuelans since late past year.

Opposition leader Juan Guaido, 35, is seeking to capitalise on public anger over the blackout, which has piled misery on a population suffering years of economic crisis and shortages of food and medicine under Maduro. The U.S. has led an worldwide effort to oust socialist President Nicolas Maduro and replace him with Guaido, who vows to hold a new presidential election. He has also promised an investigation into Guaido for "alleged involvement in the sabotage of the Venezuelan electricity system".
