US Applies More Than 8,000 “Sanctions” to 39 Countries, Affecting 1/3 of Humanity
The imposition of arbitrary measures or “sanctions” by the United States against numerous countries around the world was denounced by the Venezuelan delegation present at the XVIII Summit of Non-Aligned Countries, held in Baku, Azerbaijan. The Venezuelan ambassador to the United Nations Organization, Samuel Moncada, denounced the economic terrorism executed by US President Donald Trump, which affects a third of humanity with more than 8,000 measures in 39 countries.
Only between 2015 and 2018, the economic blockade of Washington against Venezuela caused losses to the South American country of 130,000 million dollars. Likewise, the theft of the Venezuelan company CITGO in the United States, enacted illegally by the Venezuelan deputy, Juan Guaidó, caused Venezuela losses of another 11 billion dollars in frozen dividends and more seven billion dollars due to illegal appropriation of assets.
