Fox News Latino quotes Latin America Center Deputy Director Jason Marczak on the possibility of Venezuela gaining a nonpermanent spot on the UN Security Council:
Jason Marczak, the director of the Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center, told FNL this year is a very different situation from 2006, when Chávez launched his world tour.
“The U.S. has learned how to play the game with Venezuela and not directly criticize them, and Venezuela has also learned to keep quiet on the issue,” Marczak said.
“It will play into the hands of the Russians as the Venezuelans will take orders directly from the Russians,” Marczak said.
“Venezuela securing a spot on the Security Council is the regime’s last hurrah on the world stage,” Marczak said.
