Venezuelan president slams Obama for signing law against Caracas


Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has slammed US President Barack Obama for signing into law a legislation which allows Washington to freeze the assets of Venezuelan officials within US territory over their alleged involvement in crackdown on anti-government protesters. Maduro said US imperialists will not succeed in their attempt to damage a brave nation like Venezuela.
Socialist deputies have also condemned the move.However, opposition leaders have a different view and support Obama’s legislation.Opposite views can be seen among the citizens, as well. Although the opposition says the sanctions signed by President Obama are exclusively against senior Venezuelan officials, Socialists believe the measures are meant to affect the whole nation and consequently, all Venezuelans must stand united to reject the hostilities of the US foreign policy.
