"In respect of the rule of law, instruct the corresponding and responsible authorities so that the Venezuelan diplomatic assets, as well as the headquarters of the embassy and the consulate, be returned," he said, recalling that these buildings, which were outraged and invaded, are currently being destroyed.
Besides demanding the return of its embassy, consulate, and residence, Venezuela asked the U.S, government for the restitution of works of art, documents, and other objects that belong to the Bolivarian nation.
Plasencia asked Secretary of State Anthony Blinken to follow the example of the Government of Bolivia, which returned the Venezuelan diplomatic headquarters located in that Andean country.

In 2019, taking advantage of the coup d'état perpetrated against President Evo Morales, the opposition politician Juan Guaido appropriated Venezuelan assets in Bolivia and sold them under the complicit protection of the self-proclaimed President Jeanine Añez.
For this reason, Foreign Minister Plasencia also thanked Bolivia's President Luis Arce for the devolution of the Venezuelan assets to their authentic and legitimate owners.
