how Penalties for 'dialogue' in Venezuela?

of This list, built for now by Iran, North Korea, Syria and Sudan, is reserved to countries that have "supported acts of international terrorism in repeated occasions," and carries severe penalties.

The Government of Donald Trump studied include Venezuela in the list of sponsors of international terrorism for their alleged links with organizations such as Hezbollah or the missing Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), according to published on Monday The Washington Post.

This list, built for now by Iran, North Korea, Syria and Sudan, is reserved to countries that have "supported acts of international terrorism in repeated occasions," and carries severe penalties.

Cuba was also part of this list -for their alleged links with the FARC and with the also disappeared ETA - between 1982 and 2015, the year in which the Government of Barack Obama the retired in the framework of the process of thawing in relations between the two countries.

According to The Washington Post, quoting officials on condition of anonymity emails and internal government, the Department of State, responsible for the list, has already asked to other agencies of the Government for their opinion on the inclusion of Caracas.

The sources cited by the newspaper of the capital did not reveal if Trump has already taken the decision, which among other things could involve an embargo on venezuelan oil.

Some republicans, including the influential senator Marco Rubio, have accused the Government of Nicolás Maduro of having links with international terrorism and they have advocated for the inclusion of Venezuela in the list.

however, the consequences that this decision would have for the oil sector have made other republicans from states with refineries, like Texas or Louisiana to reject the measure.

in Addition, experts have questioned the alleged ties of Venezuela with international terrorist organizations.

"I Suspect that this (the inclusion in the list) will be based on rumors and sources of questionable integrity," he said to The Washington Post, David Smilde, of the study center of the Washington Office for Latin American Affairs (WOLA).

The designation of Venezuela as a country sponsor of terrorism could weaken the international legitimacy of the list, pointed out these experts consulted by the newspaper.

Since his arrival at the White House almost two years ago, Trump has hardened the u.s. strategy against Caracas, including economic sanctions on the own Maduro, his wife Cilia Flores, or the vice-president, Delcy Rodríguez, among many other officials close to the president.

The u.s. president has also left open the door to a military intervention in the caribbean country, and according to The Washington Post, officials of his Government have met on several occasions with venezuelan military interested in promoting a coup against Maduro.
