MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 15th March, 2019) Moscow is concerned over US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's statement that the presence of US diplomats in Venezuela was a deterring factor for the US policies in relation to the country, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Friday.

"The statement on Washington's decision to evacuate all the remaining diplomatic staff from Caracas is worrying. Generally speaking, there is nothing surprising about this intention after Caracas requested the US diplomats to leave the country after severing diplomatic relations with the United States. But what worries us is the US secretary of state's statement that presence of US diplomatic staff hindered US actions. What actions was he talking about?" Zakharova said.
