U.S. slaps sanctions on wife of Venezuelan President Maduro

30 September 2018

United States President Donald Trump says the political and economic chaos in Venezuela is unacceptable. "We're going to take care of the people of Venezuela". "Thank you, Donald Trump, for surrounding me with dignity".

"All options are on the table, every one", Trump told reporters. Last year, the White House responded to a similar request by saying such a meeting would take place if the country returned to democracy. He seemed totally unconcerned about the calls on Wednesday from six countries - Argentina, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Paraguay and Peru - for the International Criminal Court to probe him for crimes against humanity.

"We are continuing to designate loyalists who enable Maduro to solidify his hold on the military and the government while the Venezuelan people suffer", said Secretary of the Treasury Steven T. Mnuchin. "Yesterday, in this very spot, the President of the United States of America spoke once again against the noble people of Venezuela".

The Trump administration has levied several rounds of sanctions against Maduro's government since 2017.

Lavrov told Maduro, "We are ready to offer all-around assistance for all of your plans", according to reports by Russian news agencies.

"From this very rostrum a threat was issued yesterday to governments of the world that orders should be obeyed and the US policy should be followed or else those countries would suffer from the consequences", Maduro said. On August 4, he survived a life attempt. But he also made clear Canada's support for worldwide cooperation to help developing nations "to build a more peaceful, equal and stable world". During the meeting, which lasted almost two hours and took place on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly, the two "discussed regional developments and the situation in Gaza", a statement from Netanyahu's office said.

"... If he's here, if he wants to meet, I don't know. But If I can help people, that's what I'm here for".

"I don't like to talk about military. The strong ones and the less than strong ones - and you know what I mean by strong".

He said he can't disclose the evidence, but that it will come out, adding that his allegation did not come "out of nowhere". The person noted that American films with content the Chinese government doesn't approve of are commonly blacklisted.

But as Washington and USA allies ratcheted up the pressure on the 55-year-old former bus driver, Maduro announced - via a video on Twitter - that he had arrived in New York Wednesday, saying he was "charged with emotion, passion and truth so that the entire world knows that Venezuela is on its feet". Although he later softened his language, his words suggested a growing frustration among experts and observers over bringing change to Venezuela through sanctions and diplomatic pressure alone.

But his country is collapsing around him. Venezuela has been the target of harsh criticism by Trump and his allies in recent months as conservatives have attempted to portray socialism as the cause of the country's hyperinflation and high level of poverty.

Trudeau steered clear of direct criticism of Trump and said Canada and the USA share concern about the humanitarian crisis in Venezuela.

At the General Assembly, members were taking turns to speak out on pressing world issues and their national priorities in world affairs.

If Dominic Solanke isn't involved against his former club, meanwhile, he will wonder if he is ever going to get a game. That always needs time and they were always used to other football teams. "The pressure is already there".

In an address to the General Assembly on Tuesday that reinforced Trump's unilateral approach to worldwide affairs, the USA president criticized what he called the "ideology of globalism" and said that as far as America is concerned, "the ICC has no jurisdiction, no legitimacy, and no authority".
