SOT, Nicolas Maduro, Venezuelan President (Spanish): "You know that the measures are focussed on the prohibition of food being sold to Venezuela. This is the only country in the world that is being persecuted by the United States government: imperialist, criminal, xenophobic, racist. It is the Ku Klux Klan's government that is in Washington, in the White House, ruling against the peoples of the world."
