Venezuela seeks to stymie OAS meeting, vows 'severe' response


Venezuela called on Monday for the suspension of an Organization of American
States meeting intended to air regional concerns over the OPEC nation's
economic crisis and democratic standards.

The Washington-based OAS is due to debate Venezuela on Tuesday after its
secretary-general, Luis Almagro, said the country should be suspended from
the regional bloc if it does not hold elections.

Last week, 14 nations urged elections and freedom of jailed opponents of
President Nicolas Maduro's socialist government, turning up the pressure
after authorities thwarted a referendum on him last year and postponed local
polls.
