Mike Pompeo hands Venezuela’s account in the U.S to Guaido:
AFP— The United States said Tuesday that it has handed control of Venezuela’s bank accounts in the United States to Juan Guaido, the opposition leader whom Washington has recognised as interim president.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo signed off on the order last week for Guaido to control holdings in the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and federally insured banks, the State Department said.
“This certification will help Venezuela’s legitimate government safeguard those assets for the benefit of the Venezuelan people,” State Department spokesman Robert Palladino said in a statement.
The United States has been pressing all countries to part ways with President Nicolas Maduro, a leftist firebrand presiding over a crumbling economy and rising street protests, and recognize Guaido, the head of the National Assembly.
Palladino called on all nations to “take similar steps to protect Venezuela’s patrimony from further theft by Maduro’s corrupt regime.”
Venezuela, which is struggling to provide basic services, has some $8 billion in foreign reserves around the world.
A major chunk is around $1.3 billion in gold held by the Bank of England, which Guaido has asked Britain to put under his control.
