Russia Proposes Draft Un Resolution On Venezuela

Russian military assistance not requested by Caracas, says Russian diplomat.

Moscow proposed a draft resolution on Venezuela to the UN Security Council, a Russian diplomat said on Monday.

The draft may become "a basis for consensus" or could at least secure agreement from the majority of the Security Council, Alexandre Shchetinin, Director of the Russian Foreign Ministry's Latin American department told journalists in Moscow.

"The Security Council calls for a settlement of the situation in Venezuela on the basis of peaceful measures," the state-run news agency TASS "ed the draft.

According to TASS, the draft expressed support for "all initiatives aimed at achieving a political settlement."

This includes the Montevideo Mechanism -- an international contact group formed in the Uruguayan capital on Feb. 7 by 13 "neutral" countries in Europe and Latin America for the purpose of resolving the Venezuelan crisis.

Last Friday, a group of countries led by the U.S. met in the UN headquarters in New York to discuss a separate draft resolution regarding the Venezuelan crisis which TASS "ed as expressing "full support" for the Venezuelan National Assembly led by self-proclaimed president Juan Guaido as the country's "only democratically elected institution."

Russia's Foreign Ministry reacted immediately, promising to veto the draft and responding with its own draft resolution, which will be discussed by UN experts this week and calls for support of all efforts aiming to achieve reconciliation in Venezuela.

Responding to a question on possible Russian military assistance to Venezuela, Shchetinin said no such request had been voiced by Caracas.

He added that Russian authorities were in "constant working contact" with their Venezuelan counterparts.

Venezuela has been rocked by protests since Jan. 10 when President Nicolas Maduro was sworn in for a second term following a vote boycotted by the opposition.

Tensions rose when opposition leader Guaido declared himself acting president on Jan. 23, a move which was supported by the U.S. and many European and Latin American countries.

Russia, Turkey, China, Iran, Bolivia and Mexico have put their weight behind Maduro. -
