Guatemala and Venezuela agreed to withdraw from the race for a seat on the UN Security Council and support Panama as a consensus candidate, Ecuador's UN ambassador announced Wednesday. Ambassador Diego Cordovez, who hosted two meetings between the foreign ministers of Guatemala and Venezuela, made the announcement at Ecuador's UN Mission. "The two candidates reached an agreement to step down and they came up with Panama as a consensus candidate," Cordovez said. He said Guatemalan Foreign Minister Gert Rosenthal and Venezuela's Foreign Minister Nicolas Maduro "will present Panama" to the 34 Latin American and Caribbean nations at a meeting on Thursday for their approval.
