‘Venezuela a global threat’:


Arab Times - - INTERNATIONAL -

US Am­bas­sador Nikki Ha­ley called Venezuela “an in­creas­ingly vi­o­lent narco-state” that threat­ens the world, speak­ing Mon­day at an in­for­mal Se­cu­rity Coun­cil meet­ing on the South Amer­i­can na­tion that was boy­cotted by Rus­sia, China, Egypt and Bo­livia.

She ac­cused Venezuela of us­ing pres­sure to keep coun­cil mem­bers from at­tend­ing, say­ing the fact that its gov­ern­ment would go so far “is guilt — and that’s un­for­tu­nate.”

Venezuela’s UN am­bas­sador, Rafael Ramirez, de­nounced the ses­sion, telling re­porters: “This is a hos­tile act from the United States and an in­ter­fer­ence that vi­o­lates the sovereignty prin­ci­ples of a coun­try that is a mem­ber of the United Na­tions.” (AP)
