The United States will continue to stand for the restoration of freedom and the rule of law in Venezuela, US Vice President Pence has said after the meeting of UN Security Council addressing the situation in Venezuela, ONA reports citing White House’s website.
Pence said that Venezuela was one of the wealthiest countries in the region but has been impoverished “through dictatorship and oppression and the deprivation of the Maduro regime,” and today Venezuelan people are suffering.
Vice President called on the UN to recognize Interim President Juan Guaidó as the legitimate President of Venezuela.
“Today, we called on the United Nations to revoke the credentials of Venezuela’s representative to the United Nations, recognize Interim President Juan Guaidó, and seat the representative of the free Venezuelan government without delay.”
“Nicolás Maduro is a dictator with no legitimate claim to power, and Nicolás Maduro must go,” Vice President of US said.
