Lavrov and Pompeo discuss situation in Venezuela
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov held a telephone conversation with the head of the US State Department, Mike Pompeo. During the conversation, the parties discussed the situation in Venezuela.
The head of the Russian Foreign Ministry condemned the US threats against the legitimate leadership of Venezuela. According to him, this is blatant interference in the internal affairs of a sovereign state and a flagrant violation of international law. “Incitement and destructive external influence, moreover, under the hypocritical pretext of rendering humanitarian aid, has nothing to do with the democratic process,” the Russian minister said.
