U.N. Makes Confidential Appeal To Venezuela’s 2 Rival Leaders To End Humanitarian Aid Stalemate

New York Times: U.N. Appeals to Maduro and Guaidó to End Battle Over Humanitarian Aid
“Detailing an increasingly desperate situation in Venezuela, the United Nations made a confidential plea on Wednesday to the country’s two rival leaders to end a political battle over humanitarian aid that has blocked shipments of food and medicine. A copy of a report delivered to representatives of both sides, obtained by the New York Times, casts no specific blame for worsening a crisis in Venezuela that by some estimates has plunged nearly the entire population of 32 million into poverty. … Millions are without regular access to water, food, and medicine. Almost four million people suffer from undernourishment. Crime and disease are flourishing…” (Schwirtz, 3/27).
