WASHINGTON, Sept 21 (Reuters) - The United States is preparing a "series of actions" in the coming days to increase pressure on the Venezuelan government, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Fox News on Friday.

"You'll see in the coming days a series of actions that continue to increase the pressure level against the Venezuelan leadership folks, who are working directly against the best interest of the Venezuelan people," Pompeo said. "We're determined to ensure that the Venezuelan people get their say."

He did not give further details on the nature of the planned actions. (Reporting by Lesley Wroughton, Editing by Rosalba O'Brien)
