Venezuela Condemns US Sanctions
Pyongyang, May 29 (KCNA) -- The Venezuelan government condemned the U.S. sanctions on the country.

As regards the U.S. decision to impose sanctions on Venezuela's state oil company for doing business with Iran on May 24, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez branded this as a new aggression act of the U.S. imperialists.

He said it would serve only to strengthen Venezuela's resolve.

Meanwhile, the Venezuelan foreign minister in a statement said that "Venezuela reserves the most proper response to this imperialist aggression."

Venezuela intends to continue strengthening ties with the Iranian government, he added.
