Venezuela's Vice President condemned the US government's unilateral sanctions against his country as crimes against humanity.

Iran PressAmerica: Referring to Venezuela's lawsuit against the US at the Hague, Delsey Rodriguez said Saturday that the US unilateral sanctions against her country have become a weapon to destroy the Venezuelan people.

The Venezuelan vice president stated that the US foreign policy is illegal and contrary to international law.

On February 13th, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro announced that the country has referred the Washington unilateral actions and sanctions case to the International Criminal Court.

Venezuela has been subjected to subversive measures and the most severe US economic sanctions over the past few decades since Donald Trump became president.
