Qa-51, 9 August 2019, Statement Of The Spokesperson Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Hami Aksoy, In Response To A Question Regarding The Us Executive Order “blocking Property Of The Government Of Venezuela”

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 09.08.2019

We disapprove the US Executive Order “Blocking Property of the Government of Venezuela” envisaging comprehensive sanctions on Venezuela was signed on 5 August 2019, at a time when talks facilitated by Norway were continuing in Barbados between the Venezuelan government and the opposition.

We are concerned that the said Executive order will worsen the economic hardship already faced by the Venezuelan people and negatively impact the initiatives aimed at finding a political solution in Venezuela.

In this regard, we would like to reiterate once again that in order to find a lasting solution, all parties need to continue contributing to the political dialogue process.
