The United States National Security adviser, John Bolton, stressed that the world’s leading companies continue to refuse to trade with Nicolás Maduro’s regime following the sanctions imposed by the Donald Trump administration, including strategic allies of Chavismo.
“Global companies are on the alert and moving away from dealings with Maduro’s illegitimate regime,” Bolton said on his Twitter account.
On the other hand, he urged large corporations to “not risk exposing themselves to significant sanctions” while highlighting the United States’ commitment to the Venezuelan people to recover the country’s democracy.
This Thursday, China’s largest energy company canceled plans to buy Venezuelan crude oil directly as the Trump Administration tightened sanctions against the regime. Likewise, Banco Ziraat, the largest credit institution in Turkey, stopped offering services to the Central Bank of Venezuela (BCV).
