Venezuela's Guaido warns military on blocked aid

Venezuela Donald Trump Goes All Out To Support Effort To Oust Maduro

PDVSA's move follows tough, new United States financial sanctions imposed on January 28 and aimed at blocking leftist President Nicolas Maduro's access to the country's oil revenue.

Venezuela's opposition leader Juan Guaido has accused those blocking the humanitarian aid to his country of committing genocide, warning that the stoppage is a crime against humanity.

Maduro and his "corrupt regime" has been backed into a corner and will soon crumble, with or without outside help, because 90 percent of the population are fed up and want change - and the army will soon too side with Venezuelan people, Guaido claimed.

Even after a first round of financial sanctions in 2017, PDVSA's joint ventures managed to keep bank accounts in the United States and Europe to receive oil-sales proceeds. Since then, PDVSA has been pressing its foreign partners at joint ventures in its Orinoco Belt producing area to formally decide whether they will continue in the projects, according to two sources with knowledge of the talks. As one of the world's major oil companies, PDVSA opened accounts in many large banks, including worldwide ones.

"I wonder what the brothers presidents who recognized him have to say about such incitement to war in Latin America", he added.

PDVSA several weeks ago informed customers of the new bank directions and has begun moving the accounts of its joint ventures, which can export crude separately.

He also said Thursday that other countries that he would not name have offered to take in Maduro if he gives up power.

Under Maduro's stewardship, oil-rich Venezuela's economy has collapsed leaving the country wracked by hyperinflation, recession and shortages of basic necessities such as food and medicine.

Sanctions created to deprive Maduro of oil revenue have left an armada of loaded oil tankers off Venezuela's coasts that have not been discharged by PDVSA's customers due to payment issues.

"There are sanctions against corrupt officials and thieves", Guaido told RT Spanish in an exclusive interview, dismissing any notion that U.S. sanctions and years of economic and political pressure on Caracas might have contributed to the deteriorating socio-economic situation in Venezuela.
