“Today we alerted the UN Security Council and Secretary General Antonio Guterres of the threat of imminent use of military force by the United States against Iranian vessels carrying Venezuelan-directed gasoline. An act of war under international law,” Moncada wrote on his Twitter page, attaching a letter, addressed to the secretary general.
On Wednesday, during a speech at a virtual conference of the UN Security Council, Moncada said that creating obstacles for tankers bound for Venezuela is a crime against humanity from the United States.
Earlier, the Wall Street Journal reported that the administration of US President Donald trump is exploring the possibility of imposing new sanctions against Iran to block the export of Iranian oil to Venezuela.
After five Iranian tankers set off for Venezuela, the issue of sanctions against the crews of tankers or the confiscation of these tankers in case of refueling in ports of third countries is considered.
