Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro is asking the International Monetary Fund’s members to restore recognition of his government, which would put it a step closer to accessing billions of dollars in reserves.

Vice President Delcy Rodriguez sent a letter on Friday addressed to IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva and the institution’s governors, mostly finance ministers from the fund’s 190 member nations. She argues that there’s no doubt among the international community that efforts to oust Maduro have failed, and that Venezuela enjoys political stability.
