DORAL, FL ­­–– Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart issued the following statement after today's meeting with Venezuela’s interim President, Juan Guaido, in Florida's 25th district.

“I was pleased to meet with Venezuela’s legitimate President Juan Guaidó today to discuss a democratic and prosperous future for the Venezuelan people. For years, the Cuban dictatorship has provided intelligence and other support to the Maduro regime to dismantle Venezuela’s once democratic institutions, suppress human rights, and plunder the resources of the Venezuelan people. At our meeting, I reiterated the United States’ commitment to supporting democracy, and to stand with the oppressed Cuban, Venezuelan, and Nicaraguan people in their efforts to rid our hemisphere of tyranny.
