I'm open to meeting with Maduro at United Nations, if he wants

U.S. slaps sanctions on top Venezuelan officials, including President Maduro’s wife

U.S. slaps sanctions on top Venezuelan officials, including President Maduro’s wife

"I am landing in NY to defend the truth of Venezuela, to bring the voice of our fatherland", said Maduro in a video posted on Twitter showing him and his wife Cilia Flores - whom the United States sanctioned on Tuesday - in the presidential plane.

"I would certainly be open to it, I'm willing to meet with anybody", Trump said on Wednesday as he arrived at United Nations headquarters.

"We exhort the Venezuelan government to take urgent actions to provide the needed identification and travel documents to its citizens such as ID cards, passports and birth certificates", it said. This $95 million total in humanitarian assistance is complemented by $23.5 million in economic support and development assistance dedicated to Colombia to help boost its capacity to absorb incoming Venezuelans.

Venezuela's President, Nicholas Maduro, has said that he is willing to reach out to his United States counterpart and discuss mutual grievances.

Venezuelan officials have widely rejected worldwide criticism, saying they're driven by imperialist forces led by the U.S.to justify launching an invasion.

Also on Tuesday, Treasury identified five companies and people related to Sarria, who it claims is still working as a front-man for Cabello, considered one of the most powerful people in Venezuela. In a statement released Wednesday, the government said it "manifests its strongest disapproval following the belligerent statements issued by President Donald Trump, directed at promoting a military uprising in the country".

His comments came on the heels of a Tuesday speech at the U.N. General Assembly in whichTrump once again addressed the current situation in Venezuela.

However, the surge is expected to be accompanied by large and destructive waves, regardless of when the storm arrives. Hurricane Florence will be one of the biggest storms to make landfall along the U.S. eastern seaboard in decades.

Maduro responded to the meeting comments in kind, saying that he and Trump "certainly have our differences, but that is what we have to dialogue about".

He went on to say that such conflict between his government and the US administration goes beyond the current issue to a more historical confrontation between imperialism and the struggle for sovereignty. "I would be willing to reach out my hand to the president of the United States, Donald Trump, to discuss matters bilaterally".

Trump spoke while attending the UN General Assembly after meeting with Colombia President Ivan Duque (DOO-kay).

The sanctions were the result of accusations of corruption by Maduro's government.

The surprise visit came after Maduro threatened to skip the global gathering, citing fears he could be assassinated as his once-wealthy OPEC nation spirals into a brutal economic crisis and worldwide pressure mounts for the socialist leader to step down.

Delcy Rodriguez, the executive vice president of Venezuela and Jorge Rodriguez, the minister of popular power for communication and information, and Vladimir Padrino, the defense minister also were also sanctioned by the US government. The new regulation singles out Maduro's wife, Cilia Flores, Communications Minister Jorge Rodriguez, Defense Minister Gen. Vladimir Padrino Lopez and Executive Vice President Delcy Rodriguez. "Every option - and you know what I mean by strong", Trump said while in NY for the UN General Assembly. "Hopefully, one day. I've seen miracles in life".

It came as somethng of a surprise that Maduro was at the General Assembly at all.
