U.S. Shifts Venezuela Strategy at UN to Focus on Toll of Crisis

The U.S. is seeking to highlight the growing humanitarian crisis in Venezuela at the United Nations after its earlier bids to call for new elections faced stiff opposition from veto-wielding rivals Russia and China.

The U.S. called for the UN Security Council to hold a meeting on the deteriorating situation in the Andean nation, according to an official with knowledge of the request. The move came as a new report said that Venezuela requires a full-scale UN response to address increasing levels of food insecurity, disease and shortages of medicine.
