Venezuelan Foreign Minister Elías Jaua on Friday rejected what he described as "interference of the Senate of the United States in the internal affairs of Venezuela."

He said the violent events taking place in recent weeks in Venezuela were promoted by "ultra rightwing sectors." In this connection, Jaua said Caracas would not accept -and "does not even intend to consider- any decisions based on false, malicious and distorted" information.

Venezuela rejects any resolution, said Jaua during his visit on Friday to Guyana. "The US Senate should legislate on the internal affairs of the United States rather than the internal affairs of other countries," he added.

Reference was made to a resolution of the US Senate calling on President Barack Obama to "impose specific sanctions immediately, as provided for under the existing laws." Pursuant to said resolution, the US would "deny and revoke visas and freeze the assets of complicit Venezuelan officials," according to state-run news agency AVN.

Similarly, Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro's government rejected "the intent to impose extraterritorial visions and intentions" from Washington.

According to Jaua, should Venezuela believe its current situation needs to be discussed within the framework of any international organization, Caracas would resort to the Union of South American Nations (Unasur). "Our North is the South," he remarked.
