Statement by Ambassador Haley on the Announcement of New Financial Sanctions on Venezuela

August 25, 2017


The actions taken today by President Trump establishing new financial sanctions on Venezuela send a strong message to the Maduro regime. We will not stand for the dictatorship he’s trying to create, and we will continue to take decisive action until he takes steps to return Venezuela to the prosperous democracy it once was. We will use our diplomatic and economic tools to hold Maduro accountable and do whatever we can to lift up the Venezuelan people, who have suffered too long.
