U.S. Vice President Mike Pence rejects suggestion of Trump-Maduro meeting

But the resolution prepared by the United States, to which the press had access, insists on both issues: new elections and humanitarian aid.

A resolution needs nine votes in favor and no vetoes by Russia, China, France, Britain or the United States to pass. Diplomats said the US draft is likely to gain the minimum nine votes to force a likely Russian veto, while the Russian draft is expected to fail without the need for a USA veto.

The US and a large number of Western countries have recognised Guaido as Venezuela's interim president, while China and Russian Federation support Maduro.

Maduro denies there is a humanitarian crisis despite overseeing a hyperinflationary economic meltdown that has spawned widespread food and medicine shortages and prompted the exodus of around 10 percent of the population.

"We have information that companies from the United States and its North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies are considering the possibility of buying a large batch of weapons in one of the Eastern European countries in order to provide them to the Venezuelan opposition", she said.

Resolutions at the Security Council, which are legally binding, must garner nine votes to be adopted, with no vetoes from the five permanent members - Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States.

The draft resolution, seen by AFP, calls for "free, fair and credible presidential elections", with the presence of global observers, and describes the May vote in which Maduro was declared the victor as "neither free nor fair".

Bloody violence erupted at Venezuela's blockaged border last weekend as the country's security forces cracked down on opposition supporters trying to bring aid supplies across the bridge.

But US Vice President Mike Pence responded on Twitter that "the only thing to discuss with Maduro at this point is the time and date for his departure".

In Geneva, Venezuela Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza, addressing the U.N. Human Rights Council, suggested on Wednesday that Maduro and U.S. President Donald Trump meet to "try to find common ground and explain their differences". It "supports the peaceful restoration of democracy and rule of law in Venezuela".

"When each country handles the Venezuelan issue, we should.uphold the principle of non-interference in internal affairs, oppose the use or threat of military force, and uphold the standards of basic worldwide relations", he added.
