Rubio Applauds Additional Oil Sector Sanctions Against Maduro Enablers

Apr 12, 2019 | Comunicados de Prensa

Miami, FL — U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement after the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) imposed additional oil sector sanctions against individuals and entities providing a lifeline to the illegitimate narcoterrorist tyranny of Nicolás Maduro:
“I strongly support the Trump Administration’s efforts to increase pressure against the communist regime in Havana, which is not only repressing the Cuban people, but also using its military and intelligence services to prop up dictator Nicolás Maduro’s illegitimate regime in Venezuela. With today’s new sanctions against foreign companies that are enabling the Cuban regime and Maduro’s narcoterrorist crime family, the U.S. is standing with legitimate Interim President Juan Guaidó and the Venezuelan people in their efforts to restore democracy and constitutional order.”
Rubio is the Chairman of the Foreign Relations Subcommittee on Western Hemisphere, Transnational Crime, Civilian Security, Democracy, Human Rights, and Global Women’s Issues.
