New York (AP) - The US has requested an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council on the crisis in Venezuela. The debate should therefore take place on Saturday. At first nothing was known about possible steps of the Council. It is expected that US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will attend the meeting. In a speech to the Organization of American States, Pompeo had called on the military in Venezuela to protect interim head of state Juan Guaidó and declared actions by President Nicolás Maduro to be illegitimate.
