No transaction with Venezuela until we’re sure of who is president

No transaction with Venezuela until we’re sure of who is president

"It is clearly the case that the former leadership of Venezuela - the Maduro regime - is a true threat the United States of America", Pompeo told the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee during a hearing Wednesday, citing Russia's military and political support for the Venezuelan government, as well as the alliances between Maduro and other US adversaries like Cuba and Iran.

The UN should admit a representative of Juan Guaido's Venezuela government in place of the envoy appointed by Nicolas Maduro, US Vice President Mike Pence told global representatives on Wednesday.

The remark comes after earlier in the day, US Vice President Mike Pence urged the United Nations to strip Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro's government off its UN credentials. Russia, China, Iran, Syria, and Cuba are among those backing Maduro.

In addition, Pence stressed that Washington has a draft United Nations resolution, and the USA is seeking its official endorsement from all countries.

More than 50 countries have recognized Guaido as Venezuela's leader.

"The United States is preparing a resolution recognising the legitimacy of the government of interim president Juan Guaido, and today we urge every member of the Security Council and all UN member states to support this resolution", he said.

But it is unlikely Washington will get the support needed to carry out something so huge in either the Security Council or the General Assembly.

With regard to Iranian and Russian support to the Venezuelan government, he said, "the President's message is very clear".

The United States called Wednesday's meeting of the Security Council to discuss the humanitarian situation in Venezuela.

Caracas and the Red Cross have agreed to allow UN-sponsored humanitarian aid shipments into Venezuela, which has been grappling with shortages of medicine and basic supplies amid a severe economic crisis.

He briefed the council on a recent United Nations report on the situation that estimates about a quarter of Venezuelans are in need of humanitarian assistance, and painted a dire picture of millions of people lacking food and basic services. "Humanitarian assistance must be delivered on the basis of need alone", Lowcock said.
