US seeks UN vote on Venezuela for Thursday: Diplomats

AFP , Wednesday 27 Feb 2019

The United States is seeking a vote Thursday at the UN Security Council on a draft resolution calling for "free, fair and credible" elections in Venezuela and free access for humanitarian aid, diplomats said.

Russia, an ally of President Nicolas Maduro's regime, is likely to use its veto power to oppose the text, which also expresses "deep concern with the violence and excessive use of force by Venezuelan security forces against unarmed, peaceful protesters."
