New sanctions on Venezuela officials upcoming

20 May 2017, 02:02 | Darin Griffith

The Trump administration has threatened further measures against Caracas, but sanctions so far have stopped short of hitting the oil sector in Venezuela, which is a major U.S. oil supplier. Haley said Washington did not call the council meeting to be intrusive.

However, the opposition coalition has rebuffed the move as a delay tactic.

US President Donald Trump on Thursday called the situation in Venezuela a "disgrace to humanity" and said the deadly political crisis was possibly the worst of its kind in decades.

Elected in 2013, Maduro has accused the opposition of plotting a coup against him with U.S. backing.

"By imposing targeted sanctions, the United States is supporting the Venezuelan people in their efforts to protect and advance democratic governance in their country".

Manuel Castellanos, 46, was shot in the neck on Wednesday when caught in a melee while walking home with diapers he had bought for his son, witnesses said. Among them were a number of cases in which members of the Bolivarian National Guard (GNB) beat the prisoners severely using aluminum bats and individuals who said they had their hair cut off.

He was recently banned from politics for 15 years.

Most shops and businesses in San Cristobal were closed and guarded by soldiers after widespread looting amid a deepening economic crisis.

Anti-government protesters march to the Interior Ministry in Caracas on Wednesday. That sparked now-familiar scenes of masked youths brandishing shields and throwing stones at the security line.

For his part, Lee said Moon asked him to express his "gratitude" to Xi for his message of congratulations after the election. The long-disputed THAAD deployment was constantly opposed by China, which has urged a peaceful solution to the Korean crisis.

The anger is intensifying on an global scale: in Miami, Florida last Sunday former Venezuelan minister Eugenio Vasquez Orellana and his partner were booed at a bakery and ultimately forced to leave.

One official said the list of blacklisted officials was likely to include Maikel Moreno, the president of the pro-government Supreme Court, which issued a ruling in late March stripping the opposition-controlled congress of its last remaining powers.

This is not the first time the Trump administration has imposed sanctions on Venezuelan leaders.

In a state broadcast Tuesday night, President Nicolas Maduro criticized Venezuelan expatriates who have been yelling at Venezuelan officials in other countries, or who use social media to post photos of officials living it up overseas while the country struggles with triple-digit inflation and food shortages.

While Venezuelan leaders have lashed out at USA presidents frequently in the past, Maduro had largely been careful not to antagonize Trump.

"It is a very, very disgusting problem".

Speaking before a crowd of supporters, a fired-up Maduro accused Trump of promoting an interventionist policy that infringes on his socialist government's sovereignty. Britain warned its citizens against "all but essential travel" to Venezuela.

Since the beginning of Venezuela's Bolivarian Revolution, with the democratic election of former president Hugo Chavez in 1998, the oil-rich nation has been repeatedly attacked as "undemocratic".
