Pompeo disgusted by support in Britain and U.S. for Venezuela's Maduro

LONDON, May 8 (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Wednesday he was disgusted to see politicians in Britain and in the United States continue to support Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.

“It is disgusting to see leaders in not only the United Kingdom but in the United States as well who continue to support the murderous dictator Maduro,” Pompeo told reporters when asked about support by the leader of Britain’s opposition Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, for Venezuela’s government.

British foreign minister Jeremy Hunt, speaking at the same news conference, criticised Labour’s second-most senior official, John McDonnell, for supporting Maduro. (Reporting by Guy Faulconbridge and Kate Holton Writing by William Schomberg; Editing by Elisabeth O’Leary)
