Oil sanctions against Venezuela return in April

This was announced by the United States this Tuesday, ratifying the sanctions on the oil and gas sectors of Venezuela

Sanctions on the oil and gas sectors of Venezuela will return in the month of April, as announced this Tuesday by United States authorities.

The State Department issued an official statement stating: “The actions of Nicolás Maduro and his representatives in Venezuela, including the detention of members of the democratic opposition and the prohibition of candidates from competing in this year’s presidential elections, are incompatible with the agreements signed in Barbados last October by representatives of Nicolás Maduro and the Unitary Platform.”

State Department spokesman Matthew Miller noted that the revocation of sanctions relief against Venezuela is a response to the undemocratic actions of Maduro’s representatives.

The official reactions have not been long in coming. Nicolás Maduro, president of the South American nation, declared in response to the reestablishment of sanctions that migrants without documents who are repatriated from the United States on direct flights will not be allowed to enter the country.

Delcy Rodríguez, vice president of Venezuela, described the measures as rude, indicating that they are blackmail and an ultimatum to the country.
