Pemerintahan Trump Kenakan Sanksi-Sanksi Baru atas Perusahaan Minyak Venezuela – Solid Gold Berjangka

 

Solid Gold Berjangka ~ Pemerintahan Presiden Trump mengenakan sanksi-sanksi baru atas perusahaan minyak Venezuela, dan mengatakan tindakan itu dilakukan untuk menjamin kekayaan minyak itu digunakan bagi kepentingan rakyat.

Penasihat keamanan nasional Amerika John Bolton mengatakan hari Senin, rakyat Venezuela sudah lama ditindas dan mengalami kesulitan ekonomi disebabkan oleh Presiden Nicolas Maduro dan pemerintahannya.

“Sanksi-sanksi baru ini akan menjamin bahwa mereka tidak bisa lagi menjarah kekayaan rakyat Venezuela,” kata Bolton.

Sanksi-sanksi itu akan membekukan aset milik perusahaan minyak Venezuela yang ada di Amerika, dan warga Amerika dilarang mengadakan hubungan dengan perusahaan itu.

Perusahaan minyak Citgo, anak perusahaan minyak Venezuela PdVSA di Amerika akan terus mengilang dan menjual bensin di Amerika, tapi uang yang diperolehnya akan dimasukkan ke dalam akun khusus yang diblokir.

Kata menteri Keuangan Steve Mnuchin, Maduro dan kawan-kawannya telah lama memanfaatkan perusahaan minyak negara itu sebagai sumber korupsi dan penipuan. Katanya, Venezuela adalah negara kaya dan tidak ada alasan rakyatnya harus menderita kekurangan makan dan bahan bakar. Kata Mnuchin lagi, sanksi-sanksi atas Venezuela akan dilonggarkan setelah penguasaan industri minyak di serahkan kepada Juan Guaido, tokoh oposisi yang diakui Amerika sebagai presiden sementara.

The Trump administration is imposing sanctions on Venezuela’s state-run oil company, saying it wants to preserve the assets for the Venezuelan people.

National Security Advisor John Bolton said Monday Venezuelans have had enough of oppression and economic hardship caused by President Nicolas Maduro and his regime.

“Today’s action ensures they can no longer loot the assets of the Venezuelan people,” he said.

The sanctions will freeze any assets the state-owned PDVSA has in the United States. U.S. firms and citizens are barred from doing business with it.

PDVSA’s U.S.-based subsidiary, Citgo, which refines Venezuelan oil and sells Citgo brand gasoline in the U.S., will continue to operate as usual. But any money Citgo earns will be placed in a blocked account.

Maduro said the United States is trying to “steal” Citgo from Venezuela.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Maduro and his cronies have long used the state oil company as a vehicle for corruption and embezzlement. He said Venezuela is rich in oil and there is no reason for its people to suffer thorough economic disaster and severe food and fuel shortages.

Mnuchin said Venezuela can get relief from the sanctions when control of the oil company is turned over to Juan Guaido — the opposition leader the U.S. recognizes as the interim president — or a democratically-elected government.
