In early August, the permanent ambassador of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela to the international organization, Samuel Moncada, flatly rejected these threats, claiming that the application of a naval blockade can only be contemplated, in accordance with the provisions of article 41 of the Charter of the United Nations, to countries that represent a threat to peace or have committed a serious aggression, “Venezuela has not broken the peace, has not committed any aggression, nor represents a threat, who does represent it is the United States”, he emphasized.
In the last two years the administration of Donald Trump has been dedicated to planning and leading a multiform war against the Venezuelan people through the financial and commercial economic blockade, however, threats from his government have intensified and escalated others levels of conflict, after the failed coup d’etat of April 30. Since then, the United States has endangered Venezuela’s air safety by making illegal incursions into the region controlled by Venezuela and now intends a naval and maritime blockade.
