Caracas, Feb 10 (Prensa Latina) The Venezuelan government will sue the U.S. administration of Donald Trump before the International Court of Justice for the unilateral coercive measures implemented against the South American nation, it was reported on Monday.
President Nicolas Maduro ordered Executive Vice President Delcy Rodriguez, Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza, and Attorney General Reinaldo Munoz to immediately activate a lawsuit against the U.S. government for the damage caused to national companies.
Speaking from the Miraflores Palace (the seat of the Executive) to the participants in a march organized in solidarity with the Venezuelan Aeronautical Industries and Air Services Consortium (Conviasa), the president expressed all the support of the authorities to the workers of the airline.
The U.S. Treasury Department included 40 Conviasa aircraft on the Office of Foreign Assets Control list as part of the hostile policy and economic blockade by the White House against Venezuela.
Maduro rejected the coercive measures announced on February 7 against the Venezuelan airline, and also repudiated the complicity of radical sectors of the opposition in these attacks on Venezuela’s economy and institutions.
