US rules out sanctions on Venezuela
US State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell said, "We have continued to have our economic and commercial relationship with Venezuela despite some of the ups and downs of the relationship over time"
"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.
At least 30 years had passed since his last visit to Caracas. He had little time to become an expert on moving about in such a complicated metropolis.
