Foreign Minister Arreaza repudiates hypocrisy of the US government regarding Venezuela

The Foreign Minister of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Jorge Arreaza, on Wednesday warned the hypocrisy of the US government after the US Department of State announced an alleged “additional humanitarian assistance in response to the Venezuelan regional crisis” exceeding the $120 millions.

The Venezuelan diplomat denounced that the administration of Donald Trump “steals billions of dollars of assets from Venezuela”, blocks another billion in international banking and intends to project their “concern” for the Venezuelan population.

The United States government formalized and radicalized last August the illegal economic and commercial blockade of Venezuela, in an executive order signed by President Donald Trump that freezes all the assets of the Venezuelan Government in his country and prohibits transactions with the National Executive.

Paradoxically, US Under Secretary of State John Sullivan and the administrator of the United States Agency for International Development (Usaid), Mark Green, announced on Wednesday in Cúcuta, Colombia, more than $120 million in “additional humanitarian assistance from United States to address the greatest external displacement of people in the history of the Hemisphere”, referring to the atypical and induced Venezuelan migratory movement.
