The United States is considering imposing sanctions on third country actors in response to the Venezuelan crisis, US Special Representative for Venezuela Elliott Abrams said during a press conference, ONA reports quoting sputniknews.


"We haven't done that yet, secondary sanctions, it's clearly a possibility," Abrams said on Tuesday. "It would depend on the conduct of the regime over time."

Previously Abrams said that the United States is in conversations with international partners about how to put more pressure on the Maduro government.

According to the senior official, the US will continue taking "appropriate actions" against Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro and will impose new visa restrictions for dozens of Venezuelan officials.
