«We hope the sectors of the new American political power, led by Joe Biden, open their eyes on Venezuela and realize the extremist, violent and cruel policy that Donald Trump implanted in our country in a malicious way, that is what I hope» stated this Wednesday the president of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro.
During a press conference offered to national and international media from Miraflores Palace, the Head of State indicated that he was expectant to see how the new president of the United States (USA) handles his policy towards the world, towards Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as on the subject of Venezuela.
“It is a lie that these are individual sanctions, and Venezuela knows that, they are actions against the entire economy, against the country’s income. These are actions outside the framework of global legality as the United Nations report states”, he said.
In this sense, the National President assured that both the report prepared by the Rapporteur for Human Rights of the United Nations (UN), Alena Douhan, as well as the report of the United States Accounting Office (US Government Accountability Office), «are 2 forceful reports on the criminal nature of the sanctions against Venezuela and how it has made an entire country suffer.»
