United Nations rights chief condemns latest US Venezuela sanctions”

President Trump announced Monday American companies would no longer be allowed to do business with the Venezuelan government, Kallanish Energy learns.

The talks were originally scheduled for Thursday and Friday.

But Maduro's supporters have accused the USA of trying to blow up the fragile process with sweeping new sanctions announced this week that freeze all of the government's assets in the US and even threaten to punish companies from third countries that keep doing business with his socialist administration.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has blamed Washington in canceling scheduled talks with the political opposition, as his embattled regime struggles under the weight of USA sanctions.

Mr. Maduro "has made a decision to not send the Venezuelan delegation" for talks on Thursday and Friday with representatives of opposition leader Juan Guaido "due to the grave and brutal aggression" being "continuously. carried out by the Trump administration against Venezuela", a government statement said. The United States, as well as the European Union, imposed sanctions on Venezuela and froze its assets.

Bachelet did not blame one side or the other for the crisis inside Venezuela, but instead called on "all those with influence in Venezuela and in the global community to work together constructively for a political solution.by putting the interests and human rights of the long-suffering people of Venezuela above all else".

The White House has threatened to "use every appropriate tool" to unseat Maduro, and warned Venezuelan allies Russian Federation and China on Tuesday against doing business with Caracas.

"China urges the United States to face up to the essence of the Venezuelan issue, return to the right path of respecting the worldwide law and support the dialogue process of the Venezuelan government and the opposition", she said.

China hit back at remarks from a top USA official who warned Beijing and Moscow against supporting the Venezuelan regime of Nicolas Maduro, and called on Washington to stop "bullying" other countries.

Carrying the national flag and holding anti-US slogans, demonstrators gathered at the city center to listen to government officials speak.

While frequently criticizing human rights violations by the Maduro government Bachelet questions unilateral USA sanctions. It added that Washington wants to "formalize its criminal economic, financial and trade embargoes".

It said that the Venezuelan opposition delegation appointed by Guaido, who has been recognized as the country's interim president by more than 50 nations, was already in Barbados.

"The United States is absolutely mistaken", Cabello told the crowd. The crisis-wracked country has been mired in a political impasse since January when Guaido, speaker of the National Assembly, proclaimed himself acting president.
