Ambassador Nikki Haley.

The United States made a promise to the Venezuelan people when we said we would not stand by and watch the Maduro regime continue to brutalize its citizens and destroy their democracy.

Today, we keep that promise through sanctions on individuals associated with corruption and violence against the Venezuelan people.

The United States will keep all options on the table, including sanctioning anyone who joins the Constituent Assembly, and will look into additional measures to hold the Maduro regime accountable.

We will also continue to have the backs of the Venezuelan people as they as fight to save their once prosperous democracy – even in the face of violence, intimidation, and denial of services by their own government.
