SANTO DOMINGO (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will meet his Venezuelan counterpart Delcy Rodriguez on Tuesday alongside a meeting of Western foreign ministers, U.S. officials said, amid increasing international pressure on Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro's socialist government.

While Venezuela's crisis is not officially on the agenda of the Organization of American States meeting in the Dominican Republic, officials have said it will dominate discussions among delegations during the meeting this week.
