According to the report, a spokesman for the U.S. Treasury Department announced on the 25th local time that those involved in Venezuelas oil industry activities may face the risk of sanctions.
Since 2019, the United States has been putting pressure on Venezuela to prohibit the import of Venezuelas crude oil by individuals or legal persons from other countries. In April this year, the United States dispatched warships to Venezuelas territorial waters in the name of drug control. The Venezuelan government said that the United States was imposing a maritime blockade and military threat against Venezuela. On June 2 this year, the United States announced sanctions against four international shipping companies transporting Venezuelan crude oil. Venezuelan foreign minister aleasa said on social media twitter that the US action was a crime against humanity. In addition, the Venezuelan government has repeatedly called for the lifting of economic sanctions against Venezuela during the epidemic period, and stressed that Venezuela, as a sovereign state, has the right to free trade with other countries and should not be interfered with by the outside world.
