US militarizes Caribbean to tighten blockade of Venezuela

By: Jesus Silva
The United States has recently placed a significant number of warships along the Caribbean Sea. This happens at a time when US President Donald Trump has threatened to block Venezuela from receiving any kind of aid from overseas, suggesting fuel-loaded ships sent from Iran to the Latin American country.

Caracas has said that the National Armed Forces will provide military protection to the Iranian vessels to make sure they reach Venezuela accordingly. Socialist lawmakers say the government should defend the country’s sovereignty by any means necessary.

But on the opposition side, lawmakers have warned against any confrontation with the US military.

Meanwhile, experts say international law gives the right to Venezuela to receive aid from Iran or other countries.

Venezuela is fighting for its self-determination while facing tough US economic sanctions and the toll of the coronavirus outbreak.

Although the US is trying to prevent Venezuela from receiving any cooperation from overseas, Caracas assures that the purported US navy blockade will be overcome and the foreign help will be received.
