Venezuelan President Lashes Out At U.S. at U.N. Meeting
Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro finished a speech in Human Rights Council in Geneva without directly addressing the indictment of his wife's nephews on cocaine smuggling charges, which took place in New York City on Thursday.
Maduro spoke in broad terms about imperialism and lashed out at a U.S. general in a speech at the United Nations' top human rights body. He also defended his country's independence and said it would not accept interference from outside.
Thursday's speech at the U.N. Human Rights Council in Geneva came as U.S. officials handed down indictments against two nephews of Venezuela's first lady on narcotics charges.
