The United States mission at the United Nations (UN) demanded on Thursday “action” in view of the “tragic situation” in Venezuela.
Venezuelan "people are starving while their government tramples their democracy," said US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, in a statement.
Her appeal was made shortly after the end of the meeting in Cancún, Mexico, of the Organization of American States (OAS) General Assembly, without any resolution intended to cancel a national constituent assembly attempted by the Venezuelan government to re-write the constitution.
In her call, Haley noted that her government "applauds the continuing efforts of countries that are resolved to maintaining our hemisphere's commitment to democracy" even if the UN Human Rights Council and the Organisation of American States (OAS) "are blocked from doing so."
