The opposition leader of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó, said on Monday that the offer that the United States relaxes the sanctions on the government of President Nicolás Maduro “is not infinite” and could be reversed if the ruling party does not return to the negotiating table with the opposition. in Mexico.
In October, Maduro’s delegates withdrew in October from the dialogue table, which sought a way out of the serious political and economic crisis in Venezuela, after the extradition from Cape Verde to the United States of Alex Saab, a Colombian businessman and close government collaborator.
The opposition has repeatedly insisted on a return to negotiations, while Washington has previously said that it is serious about revising sanctions if there are changes in Venezuela, but is also serious about adding additional sanctions if there is not. .
“We are willing to review the sanctions and we have ratified it with a view to reaching an agreement. If they don’t sit down at the table again, the offer is not infinite”, Juan Guaidó said in an interview with Reuters.
But he added that “there is the other side of the coin: the possibility of intensifying sanctions, diplomatic actions, if a political solution to the conflict is not approached” in Venezuela. And that eventual resurgence, he added, would be of “initially particular sanctions”, without further details.
