No accusations, only supported by basic common things. It was liquidated by the USA nine minutes after the start of the silence procedure. Any questions on how ‘constructive’ the US position is? with respect to Venezuela?

In this sense, the Venezuelan ambassador to the UN, Samuel Moncada, has criticized the same day, through his official Twitter account, that the US “they doesn’t have a head of state, but a gangster,” referring to the intervention and threat by US President Donald Trump on the use of military force against Iranian oil-laden oil tankers heading to Venezuela.
Likewise, Moncada has assured that, if the US president materializes his threat, “it would constitute a real armed aggression against an Iranian civilian ship and against the Venezuelan people as a whole.”
