Venezuela Calls For Talks Between President Nicolas Maduro, Donald Trump

U.S. seeks U.N. Security Council vote on Venezuela on Thursday diplomats

The United States has requested a vote on Thursday at the UN Security Council on a draft resolution calling for presidential elections in Venezuela and unimpeded deliveries of humanitarian aid, diplomats said.

Violence has raged along Venezuela's borders as National Assembly leader Juan Guaido and his supporters - which include the USA and 50 other nations - amassed supplies at entry points in Colombia and Brazil.

"Last weekend, the world saw directly that the terror regime, whose main characteristic is violation of human rights, burned food and medicine being sent to hungry, famished people in Venezuela", he said.

But each of the five Permanent Members - the US, Russia, China, France and Britain - has the power to veto a resolution and Moscow is sure to block Washington's text.

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

The U.S. draft resolution, seen by Reuters, asks U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to help ensure there is a free, fair and credible presidential election with worldwide observers.

The draft resolution is likely to be opposed by Russian Federation, the diplomats said.

While the attempt to forcefully bring the aid into Venezuela failed, Guaido stayed in Colombia to take part in Monday's meeting of the Lima Group in Bogota.

Pence said the United States was also sending another $56 million (U.S.) to Venezuela's neighbours to help with the flood of migrants fleeing into their countries. "Does it keep trying to pile moral pressure on Maduro, or does it conclude the United Nations diplomatic route is dead?" "The only thing to discuss with Maduro at this point is the time and date for his departure", he said on Twitter.

Responding to threats against Guaido and others in the opposition, the draft "stresses the importance of ensuring the security of all members of the National Assembly, and members of the political opposition".

Fresh from a trip to South America to announce new sanctions against the Venezuelan leadership, Vice President Mike Pence dismissed an idea floated by the Venezuelan foreign minister that President Donald Trump and Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro meet.

Guaido was to travel to Brasilia to meet President Jair Bolsonaro today.
