Venezuela's opposition leader Juan Quaido said Wednesday that he would return to his country "Monday at the latest" despite threats. Guido, who declared himself acting president, left Venezuela on February 22 despite a court order. And he may be arrested immediately upon his return, said Socialist President Nicolas Maduro.
"I have received personal threats against my family but I am also threatened by the regime," Quaido told a news conference. "But this will not prevent me from returning to Venezuela, Monday at the latest."
In New York, the UN Security Council failed as expected to adopt any of the US and Russian resolutions on Venezuela. Moscow and Beijing used veto power to block the adoption of a US-drafted resolution calling for "free, fair and credible" presidential elections and "unimpeded delivery of humanitarian assistance" to Venezuela.
