The US Government has frozen Tuesday assets of Venezuelan Vice President Tareck El Aissami on allegations he''s involved with drug-trafficking, accusation rejected by the Government of Venezuela.
The imputations 'do not find any solid support on reality' and are part of 'an international framework to attack Venezuela,' the Venezuelan Foreign Affairs Ministry underlines in a communique.
The action was ordered by the Office for Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the US Department of Treasure, what has been seen as 'an aggression to which Venezuela will respond.'
For his part, Venezuelan Vice President El Aissami regarded this aggression as 'despicable'.
