US pushes Maduro's envoys off international bodies

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro is being squeezed internationally as the United States pressures key multilateral bodies to boot out his "illegitimate" representatives.

To publicly underline America's position and its support of Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido as interim leader, US President Donald Trump on Wednesday welcomed Guaido's wife, Fabiana Rosales de Guaido, to the White House.

Trump boasted Maduro and his regime "have got plenty of pressure right now," adding: "Other than military you can't get any more pressure than they have."

But at home Maduro has dug in, determined to stay in charge of his now impoverished oil-producing country of 30 million people.
