UN Security Council to Examine Situation in Venezuela

UNITED NATIONS – The United Nations Security Council will analyze the situation in Venezuela on Wednesday in an informal closed-door meeting, diplomatic sources said on Tuesday.

The United States, one of the five permanent members of the council, called for the inclusion of Venezuela in the meeting, in addition to other subjects already scheduled for discussion.

The talks on Venezuela were scheduled hours after it was reported that Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro had declared a new decree of “state of exception and economic emergency.”

The sources said that the crisis in Venezuela will be included among “other issues” that will be analyzed during a meeting which was initially convened to discuss the situation in Somalia.

The council will meet at 10:00 am local time (1400 GMT) to analyze the Somalia case in a public session, and will subsequently address the Venezuelan crisis “informally,” behind closed doors.

The meeting will be held under the monthly presidency of Uruguay which, together with Bolivia, represents Latin America in the Security Council.
