China opposes US sanctions against Venezuela and the dispossession of Citgo

The Chinese Foreign Ministry asks Washington to stop interfering in Venezuelan internal affairs.

China opposes the illegal unilateral sanctions imposed by the United States on Venezuela, a spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs declared today Tuesday and urged the North American country to immediately and completely stop interfering in Venezuelan internal affairs.

Spokesman Lin Jian made these statements at a regular press conference when asked to comment on the Venezuelan Government's statement in which it strongly condemns the process, by the US authorities, of "spoiling the Citgo Petroleum Corporation." a subsidiary of the state-owned PDVSA, based in the United States, specialized in crude oil refining and fuel distribution in this country.

The statement points out that "the forced sale constitutes a new episode of the multiform aggression carried out by the institutions of the United States against Venezuela."

“China has always firmly upheld the UN Charter and the basic norms governing international relations,” Lin said, emphasizing that China opposes the illegal unilateral sanctions and long-arm jurisdiction imposed by the United States on the South American country.

“The United States must completely abolish illegal unilateral sanctions against Venezuela and do more things that lead to peace, stability and development in this and other countries,” the spokesperson added.
