TUS not done in Venezuela, Pompeo announcing new sanctions on CaracasEHRAN, Young Journalists Club(YJC)-US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Monday that the move was meant to support Juan Guaido, the US-backed opposition figure who claims to be the president.

"We don't talk about particular sanctions but everyone can fully expect that the United States is not done. The work that we've done over these past months has been building to the place that we find ourselves today and I, I would fully expect there will be further action that the United States would take to continue to support President Guaido and the Venezuelan people," claimed Pompeo as world leaders were preparing to meet at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

Guaido also claimed that "on this tour we will be on over the next few days-- I'll reveal details as we go along -- we will have important meetings in Europe, in the European Union and specifically in Davos."

The US top diplomat further repeated his claims against the government in Caracas, offering a grim picture of the situation in the region.
