Labour’s Chris Williamson Condemns Sanctions on Venezuela

Chris Williamson, the Labour MP for Derby North and Shadow Home Office Minister, has condemned the United States sanctions which have been imposed on Venezuela. He added that the United States “had a shady record, going back many decades, of interfering in Latin America”.

Williamson said on BBC’s Newsnight:

“Surely it would be far better to try and bring the sides together, to facilitate talks and to encourage the right wing opposition to stop these protests on the streets”.

Boris Johnson, the Foreign Secretary, had warned about the situation in the country last week.
