Maduro regime's decision to expel the EU Ambassador from Venezuela: Foreign Secretary's statement

Dominic Raab stated that the decision by the Maduro regime is unwarranted, deeply regrettable and can only contribute to a deterioration in Venezuela.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab yesterday said:

The Maduro regime’s decision to expel the EU Ambassador is unwarranted, deeply regrettable and can only contribute to a deterioration in the dreadful political, economic and humanitarian situation in Venezuela.

The UK reiterates its call for a peaceful, democratic transition through free and fair presidential elections, respect for democratically elected institutions and human rights, including the release of political prisoners and freedom of the press. The people of Venezuela deserve nothing less.
