Pompeo asks to brief U.N. Security Council on Venezuela-envoy

UNITED NATIONS, Jan 24 (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Pompeo has asked to brief the U.N. Security Council on Venezuela on Saturday, South Africa’s United Nations Ambassador Jerry Matjila told reporters on Thursday.

Washington on Wednesday recognized opposition leader Juan Guaido as Venezuela’s interim president and has called on other countries to do the same. Venezuela’s Nicolas Maduro has responded by cutting diplomatic ties with the United States and ordering the country’s diplomats to leave. (Reporting by Michelle Nichols; Writing by Makini Brice)
