U.S.'s Pompeo discusses Venezuela with Brazil's new right-wing government

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo discussed Venezuela with the foreign minister of Brazil’s new right-wing government on Wednesday, in the context of what he termed a joint front against authoritarian regimes in Latin America. Speaking to reporters after meeting with Brazil’s new Foreign Minister Ernesto Araujo, Pompeo named Venezuela, Cuba, and Nicaragua as countries that do not have shared democratic values. “We have an opportunity to work alongside each other against authoritarian regimes,” he said of the United States and Brazil, a day after the inauguration of far-right Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro.
