The US extends a decree on the Maduro government
The Joe Biden administration extended for another year the decree that considers the Venezuelan management as a threat
The White House administration announced that President Joe Biden decided to extend for an additional year an executive order that classifies the Venezuelan government as an unusual threat to US national security.
This order was originally issued in 2015 by then-Democratic President Barack Obama and has been renewed by his Republican successor, Donald Trump, and now by Biden.
The White House highlighted alleged human rights violations, political persecution, repression of protests and government corruption in Venezuela in its resolution.
According to the US, there have been no significant improvements in the situation in Venezuela, which means that the government continues to be an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States.
The president of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, expressed his desire to engage in a “direct, courageous, sincere and understanding” dialogue with the United States, but so far no changes have been observed in the sanctions that the US imposed on the Venezuelan government.
