Venezuelan Foreign Minister Delcy Rodriguez said the letter was delivered to the US embassy in Caracas. She said the Venezuelan government is solving the problem by diplomatic solutions in order for the White House to remove the order. Speaking to the media, Rodriguez emphasized that some countries and organizations, such as the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States, the Union of South American Nations, and the G77 + China, called on the US to abrogate its order. Rodriguez added that Venezuela is likely to use legal measures and international law to sue the US in this case.
