Trump and Latin American leaders to discuss pressure on Venezuela

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks during his meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron in New York U.S

Before his first address to the U.N. General Assembly, U.S. President Donald Trump said he wanted democracy restored to Venezuela and warned the U.S. may take additional steps to restore stability to the oil-producing nation.

Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos reiterated President Temer's view, according to Agencia EFE, telling the US leader that Latin America would not support any kind of military intervention in Venezuela.

"I urge every country here to prepare to do more to address this incredible and serious crisis".

"Maduro has inflicted awful pain and suffering on good people of his country", Trump said during a speech before the United Nations General Assembly.

"The Venezuelan people are starving".

According to the Brazilian president, although no decision was taken during the dinner, Latin American leaders are concerned with the increasing problem of Venezuelan refugees.

"Nobody threatens Venezuela and nobody owns Venezuela", Maduro said.

After opening with a ground-shaking eagle on the par-4 first hole, Fowler mustered only one birdie for the remainder of the round. He has put himself in contention and is looking for a victory that would make this year look quite different.

Arreaza, the Venezuelan foreign minister, refutes allegations of rights abuses, saying they've been concocted as excuses to meddle in the country's internal affairs.

Latin American affairs often take a backseat for Washington during worldwide gatherings, but Trump has made Venezuela's political crisis a priority at the U.N. During his speech, he spent as much time criticizing Venezuela as North Korea, Syria and Iran.

A dozen Latin American foreign ministers plan to meet at the United Nations on Wednesday to discuss possible new measures to address the Venezuelan crisis. "Their country is collapsing", he said.

The crisis in Venezuela has already spurred the migration of hundreds of thousands of Colombians living in the neighboring country and Venezuelans fleeing food shortages and violence.

Trump invited Presidents Michel Temer of Brazil, Juan Manuel Santos of Colombia, Juan Carlos Varela of Panama and Argentine Vice President Gabriela Michetti to the dinner.

"All the presidents are absolutely concerned about the need for an immediate solution for Venezuela, a democratic and peaceful solution", said Julio Borges, the president of the opposition-controlled National Assembly. "We want it to happen very soon".
