US Vice President Mike Pence has called on the UN to recognise Juan Guaido as Venezuela’s President and to revoke the credentials of the incumbent Nicolas Maduro government’s ambassador to the international organisation.

“With all due respect, Mr. Ambassador, you shouldn’t be here. You should return to Venezuela and tell Nicolas Maduro that his time is up. It’s time for him to go,” Pence told Venezuela’s UN representative, Samuel Moncada, during a Security Council meeting here on Wednesday.

“The time has come for the UN to recognise interim President Juan Guaido as the legitimate President of Venezuela and seat his representative in this body,” said Pence. 

The US was the first country of more than 50 nations to recognise Guaido and wants the UN to revoke the credentials of Maduro’s envoys and allow Guaido to be the one to name an ambassador to represent Venezuela before the international body. Pence announced that the US delegation is working on a resolution to that end, although diplomatic sources say that the initiative will encounter rough going.
