US Senate passes resolution against Venezuela

The resolution rejected what it called government intimidation against the opposition in Venezuela. The document described as "inexcusable violence" the violent incidents in April at the Venezuelan National Assembly

The US Senate on Friday adopted by consensus a resolution rejecting what it called government intimidation against the opposition in Venezuela. The document described as "inexcusable violence" the violent incidents in April at the Venezuelan National Assembly.

Without vote or debate, the Senate approved the resolution, which was passed in the same way on Monday by the Foreign Affairs Committee, just hours after Caracas announced it had expelled three US diplomats, accusing them of meeting with opponents and engaging in alleged conspiracy activities.

Washington dismissed the allegations and responded by evicting three Venezuelan diplomats.

The resolution asked the Organization of American States (OAS) to provide a detailed report on the alleged irregularities occurred during the April 14 presidential election in Venezuela, won by incumbent candidate Nicolás Maduro. However, OAS electoral observers were not invited to witness the vote.
