US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo welcomed the EU’s imposition of sanctions on seven  security and intelligence officials of Venezuela.

“We welcome the new sanctions imposed by the European Union on officials of the Maduro regime involved in torture and human rights violations, including the death of Captain Acosta Arevalo, who was arrested after the failed coup attempt in Venezuela”, Pompeo said in his Twitter account.

Pompeo added that we must continue to increase the pressure on Maduro and his followers to be free from the nightmare they imposed on Venezuelan people.

The European Union imposed sanctions against 18 Venezuelan officials in 2018. On September 27, 2019, the list of sanctions was extended to 25 people, including employees of the Venezuelan security and intelligence forces, whom the EU considers involved in torture and serious human rights violations.
