Lavrov to Pompeo: US Interference in Venezuela's Affairs Breach of Int’l Law

Earlier, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reiterated the US' earlier threats to use force in Venezuela to overthrow the democratically elected government "if that's what's required."

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has warned his US counterpart Mike Pompeo that the continuation of the US' "aggressive steps" toward Venezuela is fraught with "serious consequences."

"It was indicated that the continuation of aggressive steps is fraught with the most serious consequences. Only the Venezuelan people have the right to determine their destiny, for which dialogue between all political forces in the country is needed, and for which the government has long called for. Destructive pressure from outside, especially force, has nothing to do with the democratic process," Lavrov said, according to a statement summarising his remarks which was published on the Russian Foreign Ministry's website.
