“It is time to rapture relations with the hegemonic United States. Venezuela guarantees its plan for investment in infrastructure and services for the people,” the minister wrote from his Twitter account on Monday.

He then went onto highlight in another tweet that Venezuela needed to “Replace imports, developing technological and production” from being US reliant.

The ministers comments were sparked by US President Donald Trump’s signed executive order that will place further sanctions on Venezuela that will eliminate the country’s access to credit from US financial markets. The follow on effect is assumed to worsen the country’s shortage of food and medicine.
