US Advises India, China Against Buying Venezuela Oil – Envoy Abrams

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – The United States is advising India and China against purchasing oil from Venezuela, US Special Representative for Venezuela Elliott Abrams told reporters on Tuesday.

The official also added that expected Spain’s Repsol company to change it activities in Venezuela following sanctions against Rosneft Trading S.A.

Earlier in the day, the United States announced sanctions against Swiss-based Rosneft Trading S.A. and its head Didier Casimiro, accusing the Rosneft oil brokerage subsidiary of handling Venezuela’s exports in circumvention of American sanctions.

The US government has imposed multiple sanctions against Venezuela’s government and industry sectors, effectively banning US companies from participating in the country’s economy and cooperating with Venezuelan persons and entities.
