Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said:

The Maduro regime’s decision to expel the EU Ambassador is unwarranted, deeply regrettable and can only contribute to a deterioration in the dreadful political, economic and humanitarian situation in Venezuela.

The UK reiterates its call for a peaceful, democratic transition through free and fair presidential elections, respect for democratically elected institutions and human rights, including the release of political prisoners and freedom of the press. The people of Venezuela deserve nothing less.
