Rumors pointed to Venezuela of using Spanish banks to circumvent imposed sanctions
Posted on November 2, 2019RELATED
The president of the United States, Donald Trump does not rule out sanctioning Spain for his supposed financial support for Venezuela, or at least it was what he answered when he was questioned about it, “We will see. We'll see".
Meanwhile, the Spanish Government flatly denied that the US government has raised such measures, after contacting the US authorities and the US embassy in Madrid.
On the subject, the acting Foreign Minister, Josep Borrell, said that there is no reason or sanctioning procedure by the US against Spain around Venezuela, "there is nothing at all", and said they are only "rumors without any foundation. ”
According to EFE, Borrell stressed that if it were true, the Spanish Government would have been the first to find out about those sanctions, so he said that they are only false news or "tares of tares."
Recall that the Bloomberg agency last Thursday said in one of its publications that positions of the US Administration were pressing to impose these measures, to which sources of the Department of the Treasury of the North American country have preferred to remain silent.
Just in September, some media announced that Caracas authorities used the Bank of Spain to circumvent the sanctions that the United States had imposed on the Latin American country, something that the Spanish canco denied, claiming that the Spanish country maintained “specific controls” on all the movements of that account to avoid its use "for irregular purposes".
