UN: Venezuelan President Maduro willing to meet Trump

United Nations, New York City
September 27, 2018 at 02:44 GMT +00:00 · Published

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said he is willing to meet US President Donald Trump in his address to the UN General Assembly in New York City on Wednesday.

"Despite all the differences that could be considered huge, the President of Venezuela Nicolas Maduro Moros would be willing, I would be willing, to shake hands with the President of the United States and sit down to talk about the bilateral differences and consider the matters of our region," Maduro said.

During his speech, Maduro condemned what he called the "permanent aggression" towards his country, saying “the Venezuelan economy has been subjected in the last two of years to a number of illegal unilateral actions of economic persecution and blockade.”

Maduro then decried what he described as a “media campaign around the world” which is “claiming that there’s an alleged migration crisis in Venezuela to justify a humanitarian intervention, the same scheme as the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, the same scheme that justified the intervention in other countries."
