Peru brings up Venezuela crisis at U.N., Venezuela swipes back

Peru's president Pedro Pablo Kuczynski told the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday he is concerned about what he called the critical economic situation in Venezuela, citing shortfalls of food and medicine, while Venezuela accused him of meddling.

It was the latest in a series of diplomatic blows to the OPEC-member country as it suffers through a major economic crisis with food supplies depleted and triple-digit inflation.

"It is unavoidable that I mention our concern for the very critical political, economic and social situation that our friendly nation of Venezuela is experiencing," Kuczynski said in an official address to the annual gathering of world leaders.

Venezuela's representative to the United Nations, Rafael Ramirez, called Kuczynski's comments "a gratuitous attack."

1. These PSUV assholes will not admit that they've become a dictatorial bunch


And they'll stop at nothing to stay in power either, even if it means death. That makes them all the more dangerous
