UN urged to scale up aid as Venezuela crisis deepens

Updated : April 04, 2019 11:42 PM IST

A new report by researchers at Human Rights Watch and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health said UN chief, Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, should officially declare that Venezuela is facing a "complex humanitarian crisis".
This would formally allow UN agencies to step up their aid response to the South American nation and help Venezuelans get the food, medicine and healthcare they urgently need.
The UN has found itself stuck in the middle of a political struggle that pits Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro against US-backed opposition leader Juan Guaido, who invoked the constitution to assume an interim presidency in January.
