U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo assured that the U.S. government will continue to exert pressure against Nicolas Maduro’s regime to restore democracy in Venezuela.
“We will do everything we can, that does not only include economic pressure on the Maduro regime and pressure for Cuba to withdraw its security forces from Venezuela,” Pompeo explained during a telephone conference with the foreign press from Washington.
The head of U.S. diplomacy said a “global coalition” has been formed to help Venezuela achieve freedom. He recalled that the Lima Group and some 60 countries already recognize Juan Guaidó as the President (E) of the Republic.
“We’ve seen Maduro’s corrupt justice system. We’ve seen it trying to impose itself on political parties. And we are convinced that the Venezuelan people see this for what it is and will respond in a way that reflects their deep desire to restore order and democracy to their country,” he remarked.
