The United States may begin the process of lifting unilateral sanctions against Venezuela if there is progress in the dialogue between the authorities and the opposition of this country. Juan Gonzalez, Senior Director of Western Hemisphere Affairs at the White House National Security Council, said.
According to him, the American side is making every effort to “establish democracy” in Venezuela through dialogue with the Venezuelan authorities.
“And we signaled very clearly that … we are ready to ease sanctions based on progress in these negotiations. And we will re-impose these sanctions if there is a regression or lack of negotiations, ”Then24 quotes Gonzalez.
In addition, he noted that Washington does not intend to tighten the regime of existing sanctions against Venezuela.
In June, the White House announced that US President Joe Biden allowed the easing of sanctions against Venezuela.
Also, Assistant to the American leader for national security Jake Sullivan noted that the US authorities are ready to improve relations with Venezuela in a number of areas on the principle of “action in response to action.”
