Diego Arria is a Venezuelan with broad experience - particularly in politics and diplomacy. For instance, he was Venezuela's ambassador to the U.N. Later, he was a U.N. official, an assistant secretary-general. With Jay, he discusses the latest out of his country: the push for democracy and the furious resistance of the dictatorship. He talks about the young people leading the opposition: Juan Guaidó and Leopoldo López. He talks about the role of the United States - and of the regime's backers, particularly Cuba, Russia, and China. Also: What is the effect of all this on Ambassador Arria personally? A wise, informed, intimately involved voice.
