U.S. to use all tools to hold Maduro accountable: Pompeo

(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) The United States will continue to use all economic and political tools at its disposal to hold Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro accountable for a worsening crisis in his country, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Sunday (April 14).

Pompeo made the comments in the Colombian border city of Cucuta, the final stop of a three-day trip to Chile, Paraguay and Peru, a clutch of fast-growing countries in a region where Washington's concerns are focused on the Venezuelan crisis and China's growing presence.

Maduro blames U.S. sanctions for the country's economic problems and dismisses opposition leader Juan Guaido - who in January invoked the constitution to assume an interim presidency, arguing Maduro's 2018 re-election was illegitimate - as a U.S. puppet.

More than 3 million Venezuelans have fled hyperinflation, food and medicine shortages and political crisis.

"The United States will continue to utilize every economic and political means at our disposal to help the Venezuelan people," Pompeo said after visiting with migrants at a Cucuta shelter and touring border bridges and a warehouse storing humanitarian aid.

"Using sanctions, visa revocations and other means, we pledge to hold the regime and those propping it up accountable for their corruption and their repression of democracy."
