“We are helping to strengthen the legitimacy (of the Venezuelan opposition leader. - RT ) Juan Guaido in the international community, despite all efforts (Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro. - RT ) to undermine this. We confront the threat and impose new restrictions on Maduro and thousands of other Venezuelan officials. And you should know that new actions will follow, ”he said during a speech at the Organization of American States (OAS).
