Maduro denies alleged plans to flee Venezuela


CARACAS, May 1, 2019 (BSS/AFP) – Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro denied
Tuesday claims by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that he had intended to
flee to Cuba in the midst of a military uprising against him.

“Mike Pompeo said that… Maduro had a plane ready to take him to Cuba but
the Russians prevented him from leaving the country. Mister Pompeo, please,
this really is a joke,” Maduro said.
