Venezuela open to barter trade with India to boost oil sales

Brazil has agreed to store tons of humanitarian aid at a centre near the border with Venezuela, envoys sent by opposition leader Juan Guaido said Monday after meetings with Brazilian officials.

The move comes after the United States imposed new financial sanctions aimed at preventing oil revenues reaching the government of President Nicolas Maduro.

"There are people responsible for this and the regime should know it", Guaido said after attending Sunday Mass.

Maduro has lashed out on Washington over its policies toward Caracas, suggesting the United States thought to take control over Venezuela's oil assets. "This a crime against humanity, men of the armed forces".

Toledo said "in coming days we will visit the state of Roraima to see where this storage center will be and from next week we will organize the arrival of this humanitarian aid".

Commenting on reports about military assistance, Aleksander Shchetinin, head of the Department of Latin America at the Russian Foreign Ministry stated that Venezuela has not asked Russia for it.

The Venezuelan oil minister, who now holds the rotating presidency of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), said it was important to listen to all the consuming countries that represent oil demand to maintain the balance of demand and supply in the markets. Venezuela has been in a political crisis since Gauido proclaimed himself as the country's interim president.

"Our country hopes to receive the solidarity and full support of the member countries of OPEC and its ministerial Conference, in the fight we are now having against the illegal and arbitrary intrusion of the United States in the internal affairs of Venezuela".
