“Being a party to this Council is a privilege and no human rights violator should be allowed a seat.”

Nikki Haley deplored that the United Nations “has never pondered on a resolution on Venezuela; in March, however, adopted five partial resolutions against one single country, Israel.”

The US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, claimed on Tuesday that the Venezuelan government attempts at destroying human rights and emboldened it to leave the Geneva Council. In turn, the Venezuelan government replied that Washington “cannot claim the moral high ground” for this matter.

The Venezuelan government is "destroying human rights and democracy," Haley told a US-hosted panel of Venezuelan activists and experts held on the sidelines of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, AFP reported.

The US ambassador accused the Venezuelan government of “crimes against economic and political institutions of Venezuela.”

Haley insisted, “the (Nicolás) Maduro regime has purposefully starved and deliberately hurt its own people.”

President Maduro is “turning that formerly prosperous democratic nation into a rusting dictatorship,” she added.

"This is an economic, political and humanitarian crisis that demands the world's attention," Nikki Haley said.

"The Venezuela regime is fooling no one. Recognizing that its grip on power has slipped, it is yet again trying to change the rules of the game," Haley said.

"There are many things that could be done to help the people of Venezuela. But they really only need one thing: a free election."
