US urges Venezuelan troops to allow aid into the country in exchange for freedom from sanctions
"You could imagine a possibility that if there is a need to go into Venezuela and do humanitarian operations, or need to go into Venezuela to do other types of operations such as protecting the members of the Guaido government or members of the National Assembly at risk", said Evan Ellis, a research professor of Latin American studies at the Strategic Studies Institute of the U.S. Army War College.
Colombian officials and a CNN photojournalist at the scene confirmed the presence of the blockade, which would effectively prevent humanitarian aid from reaching Venezuela via this route.
China says peaceful dialogue and political means are the "only way" toward enduring peace in Venezuela and says it backs multinational efforts toward that end.

Lester Toledo, who represents Guaido in the aid mission in Cucuta, issued a message to Venezuelan troops, telling them the aid contains food and medicine their own families need.
It's possible the Venezuelan government fears aid crossing the border could be used as cover for an invasion to depose Maduro.
Maduro also accused US President Donald Trump of orchestrating a coup.
But it appears President Nicolas Maduro will not let rival leader Guaido secure any semblance of a political victory, even if it's at the cost of his people.
"The package is very nice on the outside: humanitarian aid". On Friday, Romania's president became the latest world leader to recognize Guaido as interim president nearly a week after other European Union countries did so.
"And there are a number of countries who are willing to accept him".
Venezuela's Foreign Ministry has denounced any worldwide support for Guaido, suggesting that European governments were acting as part of a US-led effort to topple Maduro, who has showed no signs of relinquishing power.
Guaido, who heads the opposition-led National Assembly, declared himself Venezuela's legitimate ruler on January 23.
However military intervention opponents point out the humanitarian crisis in Venezuela does not pose a direct security threat to the United States. "Venezuela keeps going!" Maduro said at a recent pro-government rally.
