US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo ended a visit to Peru on Sunday traveling to the Colombian border city of Cucuta.

After attending a Sunday service in the Peruvian capital Lima, Pompeo set off shortly after noon for the final leg of his tour of South America, which began Friday in Chile.

The highlight of Pompeo's trip will be the brief visit to Cucuta, where he will meet refugees.

"Peru has felt firsthand the effects of the disastrous Nicolas Maduro and the pain that he has brought to the Venezuelan people," he had said Saturday, following talks with President Martin Vizcarra and Foreign Minister Nestor Popolizio.

Pompeo said that Peru had shown "enormous leadership in responding to this challenge."
