The Venezuelan Ambassador to the United States, Carlos Vecchio, said Thursday that Nicolas Maduro’s dictatorship is using the crisis and the quarantine established by the impact of COVID-19 to do illegal business with unscrupulous regimes.
“Maduro uses the crisis and the lack of supplies generated by his dictatorship, together with regimes like Iran, as an excuse to continue looting the gold and resources of Venezuela,” Vecchio said in a message published on his official Twitter account.
Earlier, a high-ranking U.S. government official said that Washington has a “high degree of certainty” that Nicolas Maduro’s regime is paying Iran with tons of gold.
After the announcement, Ambassador Vecchio questioned “Who is behind the fuel “business”? Maduro is not looking for a solution but rather to deepen his criminal activity”.
“Venezuela will not have peace as long as Maduro’s narco-terrorist regime from the dictatorship continues to shelter international terrorism.” he ended
