The deputy of the National Assembly, Williams Dávila, denied on Friday that international sanctions against officials of Nicolás Maduro’s dictatorship blocked humanitarian aid to assist the crisis aggravated by the coronavirus.
“It is completely false that the international sanctions against officials of the regime prevent the sending of Humanitarian Aid to Venezuela to assist with food and medicine to Venezuelans in the midst of the humanitarian emergency worsened by the Covid-19 pandemic,” said Davila through his official account in Twiiter.
In this context, he added that proof of this would be “the 90 tons of medical supplies that come from the United Nations, which is part of the international cooperation made by the president in charge, Juan Guaidó.”
“Part of these 90 tons have been donated by the United States,” added the parliamentarian.
The official also denounced that “Maduro’s regime has spent in the last years 20 million dollars to improve its image with the Trump administration and to lift the sanctions through lobbying in the United States”.
“It is clear that a hunger emergency will kill more than the COVID-19 crisis itself”, he ended.
