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 Nicolás 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.
