US walks out of UN arms forum as Venezuela takes chair

The US walked out of the Conference on Disarmament on Tuesday to protest Venezuela assuming the rotating presidency of the UN-sponsored forum. ’A representative of Juan Guaido, the interim president, should be in this body, should be sitting in that chair right now...The former Maduro regime is in essence dead’, said Robert Wood, US disarmament ambassador, said after leaving the session in Geneva.
