Venezuela’s Foreign Ministry Calls Trump’s Latest Sanctions Desperate Aggression


MEXICO CITY (Sputnik) – Venezuela condemned the publication by the US Department of the Treasury of new sanctions lists shortly before the inauguration of US President-elect Joe Biden.

“The government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela condemns before the international community a new desperate aggression against the Venezuelan people by the outgoing government of Donald Trump,” the Venezuelan Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

Earlier, the US Treasury Department published mixed lists related to sanctions on Russia, Yemen, Venezuela and the fight against terrorism. The latest round of Venezuela-related sanctions targeted a total of three individuals, 14 entities and six vessels for “their ties to a network attempting to evade United States sanctions on Venezuela’s oil sector.”
