WASHINGTON – The spokesperson for the Office of the United States Trade Representative, Adam Hodge, today released the following statement on U.S. action to prevent maduro regime’s effort to undermine U.S. sanctions  

“The United States will reject any effort by Maduro to misuse the WTO to attack U.S. sanctions aimed at restoring human rights and democracy to Venezuela. The United States exercised its rights as a WTO Member to object to this illegitimate panel request because representatives of the Maduro regime do not speak on behalf of the Venezuelan people.”
