Ambassador of Venezuela to Dominica His Excellency Jose Savelli on Monday slammed the United States for economic sanctions imposed on his country.
During a ceremony to commemorate the 15th Anniversary of Oil Company PDV Caribe Dominica Ltd, the Ambassador spoke to the well- meaning goals of the company.
He said, however, Petro Caribe is being stifled by the corporate interest of the region’s energy market, a profit- centric interest which has led the United States to impose to a number of sanctions on Venezuela.
Savelli believes the sanctions are meant as not only a deterrent to other countries of the region who venture into the energy industry, but for America’s financial gain.
He says, however, Venezuela has important allies, including Dominica.
