Venezuela: the EU ambassador leaves the country on Tuesday - diplomatic source

The European Union ambassador to Venezuela, Isabel Brilhante Pedrosa, will leave the country on Tuesday, a European diplomatic source told Lusa today, without giving further details.

Isabel Brilhante Pedrosa has been declared “persona non grata” by the government of President Nicol├ís Maduro.

On Wednesday, Caracas decided to expel the ambassador in retaliation for a series of sanctions imposed by the European Union on 19 Venezuelan government officials.

The Portuguese diplomat initially had 72 hours to leave Venezuela.
