President Trump says United States is working to get aid into Venezuela

Venezuela turns to Russia for help as crisis deepens

Security Council rejects US, Russia resolutions on Venezuela

Russian Federation and the United States have been at loggerheads over a US -led campaign for worldwide recognition of Juan Guaido, the Venezuelan opposition leader and head of the country's elected National Assembly, over President Nicholas Maduro.

Jorge Arreaza: "Again, we are calling for dialogue-dialogue with the United States, yes, why not?-between President Maduro and President Trump".

Guaido, the head of Venezuela's legislature, has won recognition as the country's rightful leader from more than 50 nations, including the United States, but has been unable to wrest power from Maduro.

Nebenzia said the Trump administration's sole goal is "regime change, including with threats to do so via foreign intervention". He did not provide further details. Earlier in the week, Guaido met with U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and Colombian President Ivan Duque about the Venezuelan conflict.

But Guaido said he plans to go back, telling a television interviewer, "A prisoner is no use to anyone".

The United States and about 50 other countries recognize Guaido as Venezuela's legitimate leader and support his claim that Maduro was re-elected a year ago in an allegedly flawed vote.

Russian Federation and Venezuela agree that "the actions of the USA and their supporters in violation of all norms of worldwide law, their active calls for changing power in Venezuela, including their appeal to the country's military, can not be deemed appropriate in the modern global conditions", Vershinin said.

It is hosting one of the Venezuelan opposition's collection points for aid, and together with the United States has funded some 200 tonnes of food and medicine being stockpiled in the northern city of Boa Vista. He heads to Paraguay on Friday after lobbying in Brazil for worldwide pressure on the government back home and coordinating a failed attempt to deliver aid across the Colombian border to desperate Venezuelans.

Russian Federation and China vetoed a U.S. -drafted U.N. Security Council resolution calling for a free and fair presidential election in Venezuela and unhindered aid access. "This man-made crisis has extended well beyond Venezuela's borders and threatens to destabilize the region", USA special envoy for Venezuela Elliott Abrams told the council.

"We are hopeful that over the next couple of weeks, we can really begin to make a dent in that problem", Pompeo told reporters while flying to the Philippines from Vietnam. Incumbent President Nicolas Maduro qualified Guaido's move as an attempt to stage a coup orchestrated by Washington.
