On January 26th 2019 the Permanent Representative of Russia to the United Nations Vasily Nebenzya, speaking at the 8452nd meeting of the UN Security Council on the topic of the situation in Venezuela, asked America (or more precisely – Mike Pompeo) a simple and rhetorical question: are you going to once again violate the UN Charter?
Note by The Saker: Elliott Abrams has been appointed as the United States’ Special Envoy to Venezuela and today he spoke for the Elliott Abrams USA in the UNSC.
THAT Elliott Abrams?! Seriously?!
“He is currently a senior fellow for Middle Eastern studies at the Council on Foreign Relations. Additionally, Abrams holds positions on the Committee for Peace and Security in the Gulf (CPSG), Center for Security Policy & National Secretary Advisory Council, Committee for a Free Lebanon, and the Project for the New American Century. Abrams is a current member of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Council”
