Venezuela's Guaido considering attending U.N. general assembly: envoy
Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido is considering attending the United Nation’s General Assembly in New York this month but has not yet reached a decision, the opposition envoy to the United States, Carlos Vecchio, said on Monday.

The Venezuelan opposition wants European countries to impose more targeted sanctions on the government of President Nicolas Maduro and cut off financial transactions, including the gold trade, Vecchio said. He made his comments after the opposition said that a dialogue mediated by Norway to try to resolve Venezuela’s political crisis had ended.

Maduro said last week he would not travel to New York for the annual meeting of the United Nations, but that two of his envoys would attend to denounce sanctions on Venezuela, a major oil producer.

Guaido led a failed uprising in April against Maduro, who is accused of rights violations and has overseen an economic collapse prompting millions to flee. He is recognized as Venezuela’s rightful leader by dozens of countries, including the United States.
