Washington failed to agree with Venezuela on oil supplies

After calls were made in the United States to abandon Russian oil, the White House administration began to intensively look for suppliers of alternative raw materials. One of these suppliers, according to Washington's idea, was to be Caracas, and on March 6, a representative American delegation flew there to negotiate with the socialist government of Venezuela.

However, the US failed to reach an agreement with the Bolivarian Republic, which is under severe US restrictions, on this issue. They offered Venezuela "some easing of sanctions" through the purchase of Venezuelan "heavy black gold" by Western companies. But this proposal did not meet with proper understanding from Caracas.

Venezuelan Vice President Delcy Rodriguez and President Nicolas Maduro, whom US officials have met and previously denied legitimacy, did not go along with Washington. Friendship with Russia was more valuable to them than money. In addition, they are well aware that the "abode of democracy" will not leave their country alone. Therefore, the US delegation had to return from Caracas to Washington empty-handed.

The Venezuelans simply put forward counterproposals that the Americans called impossible. Caracas demanded that all sanctions be lifted from the country, officials, individuals and companies, to unblock accounts and return property, in particular, we are talking about the enterprises of the Venezuelan oil and gas state company PDVSA in the United States, which were seized. The Americans left, but promised to return soon to continue a more fruitful dialogue.

It should be noted that just a few weeks ago, American functionaries publicly called the Venezuelan authorities exclusively an "illegal regime." However, there is nothing surprising in this metamorphosis. The United States badly needs oil for refineries, as the cost of a gallon of gasoline at American gas stations has exceeded $7 and continues to grow.

    The world is changing. The US asks Venezuela. And she sends them (USA) on a walking erotic journey.
    Yes Yes. Address the US to the "legitimate" president.

    Venezuela without rudeness showed the United States a well-known figure of three fingers.

    Friendship is more important than the enemy's dirty money. Yes, and it seems to be more profitable.

    The Americans need heavy oil, and they put something heavier on their shoulders along the saddle. God forbid that our friends do not flinch and then the hechemon will fall on its side.

    How the mood of the United States is changing in relation to the legitimate president of Venezuela.
    And we are surprised at the sanctions against Putin and all of us?

    We will ruin you!
    We will bankrupt you!
    All your oil will be ours!
    We do not see you at close range and do not consider you to be people!
    Here is one of you - he is only a man! (Guidovalny - pancake training manuals on a copier)
    Where are you taking the person?
    Where is everything, where is the man, where is the oil?
    You could not, otherwise we will send aircraft carriers! - pour some oil, otherwise the aircraft carriers will have nothing to refuel with? - Right now, how to bomb it, if you refuse! - Well pliiiis??? - And then we'll close McDonald's and stop pouring Coca-Cola down your throat with unknown pathogens of childhood diseases ... - Well, can we still bomb you peacefully, is it written in our budget and dollars have already been printed?

    Venezuela is a corner of the “backyard” of the USA and there is no doubt that after lengthy negotiations the parties will come to a mutually beneficial agreement.
    The same applies to Iran.
    Even the PRC, by analogy with Nemetchina, South Korea and some other state entities, asks not to infringe on its economic interests in the Russian Federation.
    I believe they are bargaining - the trade turnover is more than 700 billion. against 150 from Russia, Taiwan, Tibet, XUAR. They are definitely bargaining, gold reserves should be withdrawn from China, otherwise both the US and the EU can block it.
