ABU DHABI (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo described Venezuela's government under President Nicolas Maduro as illegitimate on Saturday and said the United States would work with like-minded countries in Latin America to restore democracy there. "The Maduro regime is illegitimate and the United States will work diligently to restore a real democracy to that country," Pompeo told reporters in Abu Dhabi, where he is on a tour of Middle East countries. "We are very hopeful we can be a force for good to allow the region to come together to deliver that." (Reporting by Lesley Wroughton; Editing by Hugh Lawson)
