Pence announces sanctions on Venezuela oil vessels, Cuba shippers

Washington (AFP) – US Vice President Mike Pence announced sanctions Friday on 34 vessels of Venezuela’s state oil company and two companies that ship crude to Cuba as Washington pushes to oust President Nicolas Maduro.

“Those looking on should know this: All options are on the table. And Nicolas Maduro would do well not to test the resolve of the United States of America,” Pence said in a speech at Rice University in Houston.
