Pompeo: US Diplomats to Remain in Venezuela

(From UPI)

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Wednesday night that the U.S. will continue diplomatic relations with Venezuela as President Nicolas Maduro does not have the legal authority to break diplomatic relations or to declare diplomats persona non grata.

The statement comes hours after Maduro broke off relations with the U.S. and ordered its diplomats to leave the country within 72 hours while accusing the U.S. of leading a coup to install a puppet presidency in the South American country.
