Iran rejects US allegations that Tehran allegedly has a “mysterious air bridge with Caracas.”
This statement was made by the official representative of the Iranian Foreign Ministry Abbas Mousavi.
“The US government, which uses a policy of economic sanctions, military threats and the recent establishment of a transitional council against Venezuela, failed because it faced resistance from the Venezuelan authorities and people,” Tasnim quoted him as saying.
According to Mousavi, Washington puts forward such accusations to thwart Caracas’s plans to restore oil refineries in the country.
Gasoline shortages, in turn, are also caused in Venezul due to severe US sanctions, Mousavi emphasized.
