While speaking at the United Nations General Assembly in New York on Wednesday (September 26), Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said he is willing to meet with U.S. President Donald Trump and to speak about anything the U.S. government wants to discuss.

Earlier in the day, U.S. President Donald Trump said he would be open to meeting the socialist leader of the crisis-stricken South American nation.

Maduro frequently accuses the United States of seeking to sabotage his administration by fomenting an economic crisis and stoking unrest.

The Trump administration and many Latin American governments, however, blame Venezuela’s economic meltdown on reckless money printing, dysfunctional currency controls and poor management by Maduro’s administration. Inflation is running at 200,000 percent and basic foods and medicines, like rice and antibiotics, are increasingly difficult to obtain.

Maduro said that a migration crisis had been “fabricated,” and claimed that the United States and other Latin American countries were calling the situation in Venezuela a “humanitarian crisis” to “get their hands on our country.”

The United Nation’s migration agency said last month the exodus of citizens out of Venezuela is nearing a “crisis moment” comparable to the situation of refugees in the Mediterranean.

Maduro also called on the United Nations to name a special rapporteur to investigate last month’s drone attack.
