The U.S. Treasury Department has removed four oil tankers and four companies associated with Venezuela from the sanctions list. The relevant statement appeared on the website of the Ministry on Thursday, July 2.
In particular, such companies as Adamant Maritime, Sanibel Shiptrade, Delos Voyager Shipping and Romina Maritime were removed from the list.
In addition, the sanctions were lifted from the oil tankers, which are associated with these companies.
At the same time, in early June, the U.S. Treasury Department ordered to expand the sanctions list of Venezuela, which included several companies and tankers to transport crude oil.
In late March, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made a proposal to the Venezuelan leadership to create an interim government to resolve the crisis in the country, with the subsequent lifting of sanctions.
Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza said that Caracas is against such an initiative by Washington, while Russian Ambassador to Venezuela Sergey Melik-Bagdasarov said that Moscow does not welcome ultimatums and instruments of political pressure.
