year old war and i smile but i'll just. the u.s. will allow the leader of venezuela's opposition to control some of his government's assets that are in u.s. banks this comes after the white house ordered sanctions on the country's state owned oil company to block around seven billion dollars of assets president nicolas maduro is accusing washington of trying to steal its all reserves as pressure is increased or of russia says the sanctions are illegal the u.n. says at least forty people have been killed during venezuela's recent violence including twenty six shot by pro-government forces in january the twenty first to the twenty sixth more than one hundred fifty people were detained including seventy seven children six hundred ninety six people were held in custody on january the twenty third alone complete health it reports from washington d.c. . as the united states continues to push for venezuela's opposition to gain control
of the country's oil wealth new announcement coming from the u.s. state department the deputy spokesperson robert do you know announcement that the secretary of state might pompei o has certified the authority of venezuela's interim president to receiving control certain property in the accounts of the government of venezuela held by the federal reserve bank of new york now the reason the united states says it's taking this action is in order to safeguard those assets for the benefit of the venezuelan people this certainly building on those sanctions that were announced on monday in the midst of all of this the united states continuing to say that it is not ruling out some sort of military intervention with regard to the ongoing instability in venezuela asked directly about this on monday the national security advisor would only say that in the eyes of the united states all options are still on the table however there was
a lot of interest in a legal yellow no pad that bolton was holding and the words scrawled on it were five thousand troops colombia colombia does share a border with venezuela and this would certainly be a market escalation of u.s. military involvement if the united states were to position troops along that border . yeah events from bogota. well these new sanctions will have an extremely damaging effect in venezuela and the ability of the government to operate that's because the venezuelan government relies on the hard currency the u.s. dollars and we see this selling barrels of oil to the u.s. on a daily basis to function the government also needs this money to redistributed to businesses in the country. imports ninety percent of its food for
example and to do that businesses need the u.s. dollars because the local currency. is not recognized anywhere anymore in the world at this point so there's also no doubt among experts that these sanctions will make the humanitarian crisis in the country even worse than i do or government will try to use these sanctions to blame the government for the situation for the worsening economic situation in the country every day and plea the u.s. believes that now is the time to put this kind of pressure on my doodle and see if this will convince him to step down. a suicide bomb attack in northwest syria is reported to have killed a person and injured others the blast targeted a court building in the rebel held city of idlib some of injury has more from
