Venezuela blames US sanctions for non-payment of UN duesVenezuela blamed US sanctions for the non-payment of its United Nations fees, in a letter to the Secretary-General made public on Monday. The outstanding debt has since January prevented Caracas from voting at the world body. Last week, it was the only one of the UN's 193 members not to be allowed to vote for the new head of the General Assembly or in elections for the five new non-permanent members of the Security Council for the year 2021-22.
