Venezuela will submit new evidence of the US aggression against the country before the ICC
In the midst of the escalation of aggressions that the United States government insists on exercising against Venezuela, Cuba and Iran -to mention a few countries-, the People’s Power Minister for Foreign Relations, Jorge Arreaza, denounced this Tuesday that the new threats with sanctions and confessions from White House spokespeople are evidence of the hostile policy against Caracas.
Specifically, the diplomat referred to the United States promoting the destruction of the Venezuelan economy by restricting the entry and import capacity of the Venezuelan State to satisfy the basic needs of the population.
“With the resources from oil sales; medicines, food and supplies are acquired for our people. Preventing it is a crime”, said the Foreign Minister, through his Twitter account @jaarreaza.
In this sense, the FM reiterated that the complaint will be presented before the International Criminal Court (ICC) so that international justice determines those responsible for promoting unilateral coercive measures [misnamed sanctions], against the South American nation.
The diplomat’s complaint came after threats of sanctions against the Spanish company Repsol “if it continues to export crude from Venezuela and violate sanctions” from the United States.
Tehran warns Washington
In recent days, the Iranian Foreign Ministry warned the United States about interference with the transfer of fuel from Iran to Venezuela.
In a letter sent to the Secretary General of the United Nations Organization, António Guterres, Foreign Minister Javad Zarif assured that US “piracy” has threatened to “interrupt the transmission of fuel from Iran to Venezuela”, adding that the US must abandon the illegal maritime harassment that threatens international peace and security.
The United States government has intensified destabilizing actions on the Islamic Republic of Iran, like on Venezuela, in response to sovereign actions of that country and has also imposed coercive measures that reach its economy.
