United States seeks UN vote for new Venezuela election and needed aid

Venezuela crisis: Russia claims US is preparing for military invasion | Daily Star

"We are proposing the path of dialogue, even with the United States".

Venezuela has been struck by a humanitarian crisis that has left millions in poverty and chronic shortages of basic necessities such as food and medication. "Why not [hold] a meeting between President Trump and President Maduro?" the AFP agency cites Arreaza. A resolution needs nine votes in favour and no vetoes by Russia, China, France, Britain and the United States to pass.

The US-drafted text, seen by AFP, calls for "free, fair and credible presidential elections", with the presence of global observers, describing the May vote in which Maduro was declared the victor as "neither free nor fair".

Wahington once again puts pressure on the Security Council with the entry of the humanitarian aid he sent to the Colombian-Venezuelan border, a project in which the United Nations and the International Red Cross made a decision to remain on the sidelines, while stressing the need to depoliticize assistance.

The United States is leading a push for recognition of Guaido, who heads the National Assembly, backed by about 50 countries. According to the Guardian, tens of thousands of opposition party Venezuelans took to the streets in a nationwide protest on February 2, 2019, to urge the newly re-elected Maduro to step down.

Kvitova downs Hsieh to reach Dubai final against unseeded Bencic

Venezuela's foreign minister suggested on Wednesday a meeting between Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and US President Donald Trump to "try to find common ground and explain their differences".

At least 300 members of Venezuela's military have defected in recent days as the country's political crisis escalates; further signaling socialist President Nicolas Maduro is gradually losing his grip on power.

But US Vice President Mike Pence responded on Twitter that "the only thing to discuss with Maduro at this point is the time and date for his departure".

Pence called on members of the 14-nation Lima Group, that includes most of Latin America as well as Canada, to freeze the assets of Venezuela's state oil company, PDVSA, and transfer any Venezuelan assets in their countries under Maduro's name to the Guaido's representatives.

The Russian draft resolution expresses concern over threats to use force against Venezuela.
