The US Government on Tuesday denied that it is "considering" any sanctions on Venezuela and said it did not see any threats to the bilateral economic relation.

"That's not something that we're currently contemplating at this moment," US State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell said. Reference was made to US sanctions on Venezuela. His comments came in a daily press briefing on Tuesday, EFE cited.

The statement came in response to declarations on Monday by Venezuelan Foreign Minister Elías Jaua, who said that the Venezuelan Government would respond to any US sanction by taking actions in trade and energy.

"I'm not aware of any particular effort afoot in terms of sanctions in Venezuela at this point," Ventrell told journalists.
