Pompeo says the US is Planning Series of Actions against Venezuela

  • During an interview with a leading news agency, the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that they are currently preparing a “series of actions” for increasing pressure on Venezuela. He went on to say that the United States will carry on its efforts to pressurize Venezuela until the “Venezuelan people get their say.” Pompeo’s warning comes just days before the annual United Nations General Assembly is scheduled to start in New York. Reports say Venezuela’s President Nicholas Maduro is likely to skip the UNGA in New York for safety concerns. The safety concerns of Maduro have been increased after two drones exploded during Venezuela’s outdoor rally in Caracas in August 2018.
