Vice President Mike Pence, during an emergency meeting with the UN Security Council on Wednesday, urged the United Nations to recognize Juan Guaidó as interim president of Venezuela and join more than 50 countries in asking embattled leader Nicolás Maduro to step aside. Guaidó and others contend that Maduro rigged last year’s presidential election. “This body should revoke the credentials of Venezuela’s representative to the United Nations, recognize interim President Juan Guaidó, and seat the representative of the free Venezuelan government without delay,” Pence said.
