BERLIN (Reuters) - German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas on Monday said he would discuss the situation in Venezuela with a U.S. official and representatives of other countries at an upcoming Washington conference, stressing it was key to maintain pressure on Venezuela.

Maas said he would travel to Washington on Wednesday and hold talks with White House national security adviser John Bolton on the sidelines of the conference of nations fighting the Islamic State militant group.

He said talks would address how to support the democratic process in Venezuela and how to organise humanitarian aid for people in Venezuela.
