July 22, 2021, 8:38 pmCARACAS, July 22 (Prensa Latina) – The Venezuelan Ministry of Foreign Affairs today rejected the British government’s decision to impose unilateral sanctions on diplomat Alex Saab, detained in Cape Verde by order of the United States.
He noted that such measures should be tried before international courts, because they affected the health of the Venezuelan people and made it impossible to purchase materials and medicines to counter the Covid-19 pandemic.
The text also states that imposing sanctions on citizens who have dedicated themselves to facilitating people’s access to food by circumventing the obstacles of a US embargo, is a criminal act aimed at harming this South American country.
The statement concluded by noting that Venezuela will continue to denounce before the international community the “shameful act of the British government, whose current actions do not stray from the actions of its pirates and pirates, and always covet the resources of others, outside the scope of international law and civility.”
