Venezuela rejects and denounces new U.S. aggression against President Nicolás Maduro

The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela rejects and denounces before the international community a new aggression by the government of the United States of America, by announcing without a basis, alleged unilateral sanctions against the President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro Moros, as part of a sustained campaign of aggressions against the Islamic Republic of Iran, Venezuela and fundamentally against the entire multilateral system of the United Nations. In this occasion, Washington incurs in one more attempt to ignore the institutionality of the United Nations, particularly of the Security Council, by falsely announcing the supposed reactivation of coercive measures against Iran in an illegal and unilateral manner, with the expressed refusal of 13 of the 15 members of the aforementioned Council and of the UN Secretary-General himself. This new aggression against multilateralism confirms that the dominant elite of the U.S. has no respect for joint decisions, necessary to preserve international peace and security. In this sense, the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela ratifies its unyielding commitment to the United Nations and its adherence to the decisions taken legally and collectively within this Organization. Likewise, Venezuela, as an independent State, reaffirms that no intimidating and arrogant action by the U.S. government will prevent it to exercising its sovereign right to establish economic and commercial relations freely with the Islamic Republic of Iran and with any State, within the framework of the provisions that govern and regulate international trade.
