Secretary of State Mike Pompeo launched a fiery speech at the United Nations on Saturday, slamming Venezuela’s dictatorial regime under Nicolas Maduro as an ‘illegitimate mafia state’.

Pompeo told the U.N. Security Council during a meeting on Saturday to ‘pick a side’ on Venezuela and urged countries to financially disconnect from Maduro’s government.

European powers signaled they were ready to follow Washington in recognizing Venezuelan opposition leader National Assembly President Juan Guaido as the country’s rightful leader.

‘We’re here to urge all nations to support the democratic aspirations of Venezuelan people as they try to free themselves from former President Maduro’s illegitimate mafia state,’ Pompeo said in his address.

‘No more delays, no more games. Either you stand with the forces of freedom, or you’re in league with Maduro and his mayhem,’ he added.

The U.N. meeting took place just days after the U.S. announced its support for Guaido, how declared himself as Venezuela’s acting president.

Guaido, who took the helm of the National Assembly on January 5, proclaimed himself interim president on Wednesday.

Pompeo highlighted just how dire the crisis in Venezuela is in his speech on Saturday.

‘Today nine out of ten citizens living in poverty. Millions lack access to drinking water and food. Three out of four hospitals have been abandoned. Three millions Venezuelans have been forced to flee their homelands thereby flooding the region and threatening international peace and security,’ he added.
