Continuing aggressions against a people that decided to be free and sovereign, the US added Venezuela to its list of countries that represent national security concerns for its exports. It is a new attempt to isolate the Latin American country, since the previous ones have failed, commented Sputnik Egor Lidovskoy, general director of the Latin American Center Hugo Chávez.
"All this seeks to complicate Venezuela's purchases from third countries. It is another US attempt to isolate the country to overthrow the legitimate president Nicolás Maduro, "said the expert.
Lidovskoy noted that all previous attempts to remove Maduro failed.
"The military coup attempt failed, the attempted coup failed, they are unable to carry out a military intervention because there is enormous resistance from Russia, China and Turkey, as well as from other countries that support Maduro. Therefore, the US acts through economic measures: a suffocating blockade that will be reinforced. It is another stage of reinforcement so that Venezuela can not buy the goods that its population now needs, "he said.
However, the expert opined that "countries like China and Russia will not follow the US".
"Venezuela will not be without commercial relations with these countries and will be able to supply itself with the most necessary," he said.
According to the document published by the US Federal Register on May 22, the Department of Commerce added Venezuela to its list of countries that represent national security concerns for its exports due to the presence of foreign military personnel in the Latin American country.
