US TO IMPOSE SANCTIONS ON COUNTRIES TRADING WITH VENEZUELA




Serhat TUNAR -TDO- The United States also warned third countries that would trade with Venezuela after the decision to freeze all of Venezuela's assets.

US National Security Adviser John Bolton said on Tuesday (yesterday) that the US Government could impose heavy sanctions on all countries that would support the Venezuelan government.

John Bolton said that anyone, including foreigners in the United States, could be subject to sanctions, and that third parties who would trade with the Maduro administration should avoid this action.

The US National Security Advisor also claimed that Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro, whom the US administration does not recognize, has strained relations. Bolton added that international pressure must be much tougher against Maduro.
