US aggressions against Venezuela are due to oil, Llorenti says

Caracas, Mar 9 (Prensa Latina) ALBA-TCP Executive Secretary Sacha Llorenti on Wednesday affirmed that it is once again demonstrated that the aggressions by the United States against Venezuela are due to oil.

On his Twitter account, the head of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America-People’s Trade Agreement (ALBA-TCP) also highlighted the victory of the Bolivarian Revolution, led by President Nicolas Maduro, as a triumph of authentic democracy and national sovereignty.

Llorenti’s statements came after a meeting was announced this week between representatives of the White House and the Venezuelan head of State to negotiate measures against the oil industry, among other issues, due to an increase in gasoline prices, as a result of the conflict in Ukraine.

Venezuela broke off diplomatic relations with the United States in January 2019, when the Donald Trump administration (2017-2021) backed the self-proclamation of former legislator Juan Guaido as acting president in this South American nation.

Such an action, perceived in Caracas as an ongoing coup d’état, pave the way to tighten the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by Washington, along with the dispossession of billions of dollars of Venezuelan assets abroad.

On March 7, Maduro confirmed the establishment of contacts with the US Government to develop a positive agenda based on mutual respect and recognition.
