WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Venezuela’s opposition movement can achieve a peaceful transition away from President Nicolas Maduro and eventually free elections, its leader Juan Guaido told CNN in an interview that aired on Tuesday.

“We are sure we can achieve a peaceful transition - a transition and eventually free elections,” Guaido said in the Spanish-language interview, which was translated into English.

He also said he had spoken to U.S. President Donald Trump a number of times and, when asked about possible military options in Venezuela, said all options were on the table.
