U.S. Representatives Ask President Obama Not to Apply Venezuela Sanctions

On Tuesday, 14 members of Congress signed a letter asking President Barack Obama not to impose unilateral sanctions against Venezuela.

“As unilateral United States intervention and sanctions has caused deep resentment throughout Latin America, these are not the correct tools for our regional policy in instances when they lack substantial regional support,” signed 14 members of Congress, including John Conyers of Michigan and Jim McGovern of Massachusetts.

According to the representatives, sanctions would affect the dialogue mediated by the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR), and would create a counterproductive rise in tensions between the two governments.
