Other senators who signed the letter include U.S. Sens. Ben Cardin, D-Mary., Ted Cruz, R-Texas, James Lankford, R-Okla., Chris Murphy, D-Ct., David Perdue, R-Ga., and Jim Risch, R-Idaho.
The senators strongly urge Mogherini to align the E.U.’s sanctions with those of the U.S. and Canada in response to the Maduro regime’s ongoing repression against the Venezuelan people.
Scott wrote U.S. Sec. of State Mike Pompeo and U.S. Treasury Sec. Steven Mnuchin on the matter, urging them “to consider all options in the fight to begin a new day of freedom for Cuba and Venezuela” which includes “stronger sanctions on Cuba, Venezuela and their allies as the United States works to spread democracy in Latin America and across the globe.”
