WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Julio Borges, Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido’s chief diplomat, said on Monday that U.S. President Donald Trump’s attendance at a meeting solely about Venezuela during the U.N. General Assembly this week was a “clear sign” that pressure on President Nicolas Maduro would increase.

Trump and U.S Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are expected to attend a meeting with Western Hemisphere leaders to discuss Venezuela on Wednesday, Borges said.
