I'm open to meeting with Maduro at United Nations, if he wants

He also said that he was willing to meet with Maduro during the U.N. General Assembly. "Hardships have made us stronger".

Recall Maduro accused Colombia of the organization of attempt. Both nations have denied all knowledge and involvement. The six-country referral could broaden the scope of the ongoing preliminary probe to the more serious charges leveled at Venezuela on Wednesday and extend the time frame back to 2014.

He also invited the United Nations - and even the FBI - to investigate the attempt "and discover the truth".

"Our nation is a country that is harassed and attacked". "Venezuela is in economic ruin".

"I'm surrounded by sanctioned (officials)", he said on Tuesday. But he also made clear Canada's support for global cooperation to help developing nations "to build a more peaceful, equal and stable world". A national disaster has been declared in the central states of Kogi, where the two rivers meet, and Niger, plus Delta and Anambra in the south. Netanyahu, Sisi discuss peace talks AFP, Jerusalem Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi met in NY on Wednesday to discuss Gaza and reviving peace talks with the Palestinians, officials said.

Maduro's appearance at the General Assembly took many off guard.

The White House said no meeting was planned between the two leaders, and Venezuela's information ministry did not respond to a request for comment. Trump also suggested Maduro could be easily toppled in a military coup, echoing comments first floated a year ago that some sort of "military solution" might be needed to restore Venezuela's democracy.

Maduro's arrival came as Venezuela was taking a thrashing.

Maduro's wife, first lady and former attorney general Cilia Adela Flores De Maduro, is part of the sanctions, along with Vice President Delcy Rodriguez, Information Minister Jorge Rodriguez and Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino Lopez.


Despite his appearance, presidents of five Latin American governments and Canada met to "sign a complaint with the International Penal Court asking that Maduro is investigated for crimes against humanity", TIME reported.

Trump has periodically taken steps from an "escalatory road map" aides have drawn up that outlines the available economic and individual sanctions meant to pressure Maduro to restore democratic institutions.

As a backdrop to the diplomatic maneuvering were rumbles of even more dramatic action.

We are landing in NY to participate in the UN General Assembly.

"And on Wednesday Colombian President Iván Duque - one of Washington's closest allies - said "the end of the dictatorship" was the "only possible path" for the country".

The statement, doubling down on Trump's earlier threat that Venezuela "could be toppled very quickly by the military if the military decides to do that", was just the latest threat of violent action against a foreign country by the Trump administration, coming a day after the president's speech on Iran.

The surprise visit came after Maduro threatened to skip the global gathering, citing fears he could be assassinated as his once-wealthy OPEC nation spirals into a brutal economic crisis and worldwide pressure mounts for the socialist leader to step down.

Maduro was listed to speak late Wednesday.

But he said his country would not give up its political or ideological philosophy under pressure.
