The United States has blocked all financial assets the Venezuelan government was using to support its operations at the United Nations and has seized the country’s diplomatic property, Venezuela’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Samuel Moncada said during a press briefing on Tuesday.
“I am a diplomat, my personal belongings here are protected so far… but the bank accounts of our mission and also our properties in Washington were taken, and the consulate in New York was taken,” Moncada said.
