The president in charge of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó, said Tuesday that the executive order in which he blocks all the assets of the government of Nicolás Maduro seeks to exercise a financial siege to all those companies that allow the president in dispute to remain in power.
Guaidó insisted that he understands the concern of analysts and citizens who think that the Venezuelan population will be affected with the measure, but said that the dictatorship is “the greatest sanction that the people of Venezuela have.”
“I understand the concerns of the experts … But, in order to solve … it has to do with pressing a dictatorship, through the mechanisms we have as citizens, as Venezuelans, as a strong unitary coalition, as the president in charge” he added.
Also, he clarified that the order has nothing to do with the purchase of food, medicine or the private company.
“This goes to those who get rich at ribs” of Venezuelans. “Everyone who wants to get involved in the need today, misery … knows then that it has consequences,” Guaidó said.
On whether agriculture will be affected, he said that it has already been destroyed by the regime.
Guaido said that the sanctions have nothing to do with the Cuban situation, because the US recently he put an embargo directly against the government of Nicolás Maduro.
Regarding the status of the dialogue in Barbados, after this sanction, Guaidó said that they are doing everything possible to solve the crisis and confirmed that “the mechanism of the kingdom of Norway continues” because they are in search of “the conditions for a real solution to the crisis. “
For its part, the vice president of the government in dispute in Venezuela, Delcy Rodríguez, said that with the order issued by the US. the dialogue table that takes place in Barbados with the facilitation of the kingdom of Norway is being kicked.
He also said that the United States seeks to “intimidate allied countries, suppliers” of the government, and said they will go to international bodies to defend their legitimacy.
Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez denounced the new sanctions against Venezuela on Tuesday and said, in his Twitter account, that the “blockade of the assets of the #Venezuela government in #EEUU is another action to damage and steal to that nation. “
The Cuban Foreign Minister reiterated his support for the Venezuelan president in dispute, Nicolás Maduro.
