MOSCOW (Reuters) - Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Sunday that Russia condemns what he called a campaign to overthrow Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, arranged by the United States, and urged Washington to cancel its "irresponsible" plans.

Lavrov made his statements at the start of a meeting with Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza in Moscow. Lavrov is travelling on Monday to Finland, where he is expected to hold rare face-to-face talks with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
