Humanitarian groups meet at UN to discuss Venezuela crisis

UNITED NATIONS — Two international groups trying to foster a solution to the political and humanitarian crisis in Venezuela want to get buy-in from countries supporting embattled President Nicolás Maduro. The Lima Group and the International Contact Group met Monday at U.N. headquarters. Both groups consider opposition lawmaker Juan Guaidó Venezuela’s rightful leader. Peruvian Foreign Minister Néstor Popolizio says members decided to make overtures to nations backing Maduro’s government and ask them to, in his words, “be part of the solution … to get a transition” and new elections in Venezuela.
