Russia plans to submit to the UN Security Council (UNSC) its own draft resolution on resolving the Venezuelan crisis in response to US-proposed draft that envisages new elections. Copies of both documents were obtained by TASS.
The U.S. is seeking support for a United Nations Security Council resolution condemning Venezuela’s government for blocking humanitarian aid from entering the country and calling on President Nicolas Maduro to hold new elections.
(25.1.2019) Only 16 out of the 34 countries that are members of the OAS supported the U.S.-sponsored statement. Pompeo gave an interventionist speech alleging that „the time of debate is done,“ and called „illegitimate“ the presidency of democratically and constitutionally elected President Nicolas Maduro.
In the meeting, „the scene was that of Secretary of State (U.S.), Mike Pompeo, at the head of all alongside the Secretary-General, Luis Almagro, dictating practically the policies that the rest of the allied governments were dedicated to repeating,“ said teleSUR correspondent in Washington, Alina Duarte.
(24.1.2019) SECRETARY POMPEO: Thank you very much. The United States is a friend of Venezuela and of the Venezuelan people. We have watched Venezuelans suffer for far too long. We know what they know, that the tyranny of the now defunct Maduro regime has far too long – for far too long choked the country and its citizens.
Yesterday, in solidarity with the Venezuelan people, and out of respect for Venezuelan democracy, the United States proudly recognized National Assembly President Juan Guaido as the interim president of Venezuela. You’ve seen the statements from President Trump and from myself.
Many other countries, including a number of OAS states, have also recognized the interim president. We thank them for their support.
It’s now time for the OAS as an institution as a whole to do the same. All OAS member states must align themselves with democracy and respect for the rule of law. All member states who have committed to uphold the Inter-American Democratic Charter must now recognize the interim president.
Now, Congress has the opportunity to make a real difference that will save Yemeni lives. But one of the main legislative solutions it’s considering contains major mistakes that would actually perpetuate Saudi and American fighting and Yemeni suffering, not end them. For that reason, the ACLU urged members of the House of Representatives to vote no on the legislation, commonly referred to as the Yemen resolution.
(31.5.2018) US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley has vowed to “unquestionably veto” a UN draft resolution calling for an international mission to protect Palestinian civilians in the Gaza Strip. There is speculation the resolution, sponsored by Kuwait, could be up for vote Friday.
A special session of the UN Human Rights Council has ended with a resolution by Member States to investigate weeks of violence on the Israeli border with Gaza, which has claimed the lives of more than 100 people in the enclave and left thousands wounded.
“The Security Council must stand behind its resolutions and ensure they have meaning; otherwise, we risk undermining the credibility of the international system,” wrote Bolivia, China, Ivory Coast, Equatorial Guinea, France, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, the Netherlands, Peru and Sweden in the letter seen by Reuters.
Der UN-Sicherheitsrat schweigt zum Austritt der USA aus dem Iran-Atomabkommen. Das hat gute Gründe. Die haben mit der vierten von 144 Seiten des Resolutionstextes zu tun.
Zwei US-Abgeordnete haben eine Resolution eingereicht, mit der die diplomatischen Bemühungen von US-Präsident Donald Trump um eine Denuklearisierung der koreanischen Halbinsel unterstützt werden sollen.
Der Demokrat Tulsi Gabbard und der Republikaner Ted Yoho legten die Resolution am Freitag vor, dem Tag des innerkoreanischen Spitzentreffens im Waffenstillstandsort Panmunjom.
For the first time since the start of the Korean War, the prospects for peace are gaining serious momentum. We must pursue direct diplomacy in order to remove the threat of nuclear war. Tulsi’s resolution calls on the following steps:
