Pence urges Security Council to revoke Venezuela credentials

You Shouldn’t Be Here’ Mike Pence Demands U.N. Expel Venezuela Envoy		John Angelillo  UPIBEN KEW11 Apr 2019

Washington has stepped up the rhetoric against Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, calling his Russia-backed government a threat to the United States and urging the world to recognize his opponent as the legitimate ruler of the oil-rich South American country.

Pence went on to say the U.S is working on a resolution in support of Guaido, and he's calling on all United Nations member states to support it.

"We call on the United States to once again recognize that the Venezuelan people and other peoples have the right to determine their own future", Nebenzia said.

After the Security Council meeting, Pence told reporters he believed that the momentum is on the side of the USA position.

"With all due respect, Mr. Ambassador, you shouldn't be here", he said, looking directly at the representative, Samuel Moncada, who was in the room.

He also announced the USA will be providing almost $61 million in humanitarian assistance, in addition to the $213 million the State Department says it has already provided to Venezuelan refugees living in nearby countries - as well as $43 million in development and economic assistance. United Nations aid chief Mark Lowcock told the council that there is a "very real humanitarian problem" in the country.

Jet did not mention in its statement whether it was in discussions with the lessors on the present situation. The State Bank of India had on Monday offered up to a 75 per cent stake in Jet Airways for sale.

"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 USA adversaries like Cuba and Iran.

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.

Pence said Trump has made clear that Russia needs to get out of Venezuela, stressing that Russian aircraft landing in the country and bringing in security or advisory personnel "is just unacceptable".

"In Venezuela, there is a need to separate political and humanitarian objectives".

This means that neither Guaido nor Maduro would be able to enter negotiations with the International Monetary Fund for an aid program, drifting Caracas further away from such measures that could alleviate its economic problems.

United States Vice President Mike Pence holds a news briefing after addressing the United Nations Security Council on Venezuela, Wednesday April 10, 2019 at U.N. headquarters.
