Interference and Sanctions on Other Countries Cannot Be Pardoned


U.S. Vice-President Pence at a recent session of the Organization of American States urged the regional countries and organizations to condemn the presidential election in Venezuela in chorus as there is great possibility that the election was "rigged" and to sever the relations with the country.

Timed to coincide with this, the U.S. Department of Treasury announced its decision to include former and incumbent high-ranking officials and 20 companies of the country on the list of sanctions and freeze their assets under the pretext that they were involved in the drug trafficking and money laundering.

It clearly betrayed once again the U.S. nature of aggression and sinister bad habit to interfere in the internal affairs of other countries and use the sanctions as a means of regime changes for the purpose of achieving its black-hearted aim.

What matters is that the U.S. sanctions aimed at the regime change is not confined to Venezuela only.

Those countries which the U.S. singles out for slapping sanctions are independent ones against imperialism like Cuba and Venezuela or those countries disobedient to it.

The U.S. demands such countries accept something unacceptable and if they turn down this, it invents non-existing matters and builds public opinion and hurts their social systems and imposes sanctions on them.

Such matters are absurd, and nothing but a pretext to topple the governments of those countries.

The U.S. base interference and unethical sanctions aimed at overthrow of system and regime change in sovereign states are certain to be blasted by the international community.
