Venezuelan President Nicol?s Maduro asked his Foreign Minister to schedule a meeting with the U.S. President Donald Trump, which imposed economic sanctions on the South American country in response to the installation of a National Constituent Assembly (ANC), reported the Venezuelan state television on its website.
In a speech at the ANC, Maduro asked the Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza to arrange a meeting with Trump at the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly, to be held in New York in September.
Last week, the US Treasury froze the assets of Maduro and other Venezuelan authorities in the United States, in response to the ANC’s installation. According to Washington, Maduro wants to “impose an authoritarian regime” in Venezuela.
