Venezuela accuses Canada of supporting Trump’s ‘war adventure’

Published: Updated:

Venezuela on Monday accused Canada of supporting US President Donald Trump’s “war adventure” after Ottawa announced new sanctions on top officials in President Nicolas Maduro’s government.

In a statement, Venezuela’s foreign ministry said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau “has invalidated Canada as a reliable actor in dialogue.”

Earlier Monday, Canada announced new sanctions against 41 members of Maduro’s government whom it holds “responsible for the deterioration of the situation” in the crisis-wracked South American country.
