Abstract

The article deals with the researching of an outstanding episode in the history of the U.S. foreign policy, particularly in Latin America – the Venezuela crisis of 1895 – diplomatic boundary dispute between Venezuela and Great Britain. U.S. President Grover Cleveland adopted a broad interpretation of the Monroe Doctrine (the Olney Doctrine) that did not just forbid new European colonies but declared an American interest in any matter within the hemisphere.
