Diplomats walk out of UN meet in Venezuela protest

Vienna: Diplomats on Thursday walked out of a UN convention on drugs addressed by Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza, saying his government was illegitimate and did not represent the country.
Officials from Latin America, as well as the US, Canada and some European countries, including France, left the room in protest. “The members of the Venezuela delegation here today represent the illegitimate government of Nicolas Maduro, and thus cannot be considered as speaking on behalf of the Venezuelan people,” a spokesperson of the US Mission to International Organizations said.
