US and Russia push rival UN resolutions on Venezuela


(Worthy News) - The United States is seeking a United Nations Security Council resolution calling on Venezuela to conduct free, fair and credible presidential elections with international observers.

The US move has prompted Russia to propose a rival resolution, essentially raising concerns over outside interference in Venezuela's internal affairs.

Moscow has refused to support a US-led campaign to recognize Venezuelan opposition leader and head of the country's elected National Assembly Juan Guaido as president and continues to back Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro. Guaido last month declared himself interim president, challenging Maduro's rule.

More than 40 nations, including the US, major European powers, and most of Latin America have recognized Guaido as the country's interim head of state. [ Source: Deutche Welle (Read More...) ]
