Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro on Saturday described as "terminated" his government-initiated talks with Barack Obama administration. He stressed he would implement a "zero tolerance" policy for "aggressions" on Venezuela.

"My policy as president is zero tolerance for gringo aggression against Venezuela. I am not going to stand any verbal aggression against Venezuela, neither political nor diplomatic. Enough is enough! Stay away with your empire. Do not mess any more with Venezuela," said Maduro during a ceremony of military promotions in Cojedes state, central Venezuela.

The Venezuelan president also reiterated his rejection and condemnation of the statements issued by Samantha Power, the Washington ambassador nominee to the United Nations, on Venezuela. "When she went to Congress, she went crazy and started to attack Venezuela just like that. She started to say that she is going to the UN to monitor and make clear what the repression on political and civil institutions in Venezuela is, and that she will address the lack of democracy in Venezuela."

Maduro mentioned a phone call US Secretary of State John Kerry made to Venezuelan Foreign Minister Elías Jaua. According to Maduro, the Venezuelan foreign minister warned the US top diplomat that Venezuela will not accept any pressures in connection with Caracas' offer to grant asylum to former CIA agent Edward Snowden, who is charged with leaking classified information on espionage programs.

The rock of discord

A shipment of over 30,000 tons of phosphate arrived at Puerto Cabello port in late July on board the Shi Long Ling, a Chinese-flagged vessel that began its long journey in northern Africa. The cargo boat docked on July 26 after traveling more than 3,200 nautical miles. Undoubtedly, this would just be considered one in many cargo ships crisscrossing the oceans if it were not for the fact that Venezuela has denounced Western Sahara occupation by Morocco and yet purchases the territory's natural resource products from the occupying power.
