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

BRASILIA, Jan 2 (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo discussed Venezuela with 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 U.S.-Brazil relations, a day after the inauguration of far-right Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro. (Reporting by Mary Milliken and Anthony Boadle Editing by Daniel Flynn)
