Brussels Summons Venezuela's Ambassador to EU After Maduro Expels Bloc's Envoy

On Monday, Caracas ordered European Union Ambassador to Venezuela Isabel Brilhante Pedrosa to leave the country within 72 hours, with the move coming hours after Brussels slapped sanctions on 11 Venezuelan officials.

The European Union will summon Venezuela's ambassador to the bloc in protest at President Nicolas Maduro's decision to expel Brussels' top diplomat to the Latin American nation, EU foreign affairs spokeswoman Virginie Battu has announced.

"We are going to summon Maduro's ambassador to the European institutions today and, from there, we will see what measures will be taken," Battu said, speaking to reporters on Tuesday.
