Venezuela’s gold diplomacy gamble – BBC News

As Venezuela’s oil industry has plummeted with sanctions and economic collapse, President Nicolas Maduro has turned to his country’s other mineral wealth: gold.

He’s used it to win allies and raise money. But the US, which has urged Mr Maduro to stand down, has warned those profiting from what it calls Venezuela’s illegitimate gold trade.

The BBC’s Mark Lowen takes a look at Venezuela’s gold diplomacy gamble.

  2. Does nobody have the power to call the BBC to account?
    ——– HOW IS IT FAIR THAT THE BBC IS ALLOWED TO SPREAD ITS PROPAGANDA ON PRIMETIME TV, BUT ISSUE CORRECTIONS AND APOLOGIES ON AN 'UNKNOWN'
    WEBPAGE? ——-
    They relentlessly transmit propaganda, distortions, lies, biases, deliberate mistakes, etc. as they please. Because the BBC knows that if anyone has the time or will to raise a complaint against the BBC about an incorrect or biased news story, by the time it is 'dealt' with, the 'damage' will already have been done. IT IS CRIMINAL!
    Here's the page where the BBC 'apologises' for it's mistakes: http://www.bbc.co.uk/corporate2/helpandfeedback/corrections_clarifications/

    ….And the masses are fine with that?

  3. lmao why would venezuela store its gold in UK. UK-US haven't exactly been their friends for decades, seriously, there is no legal process due when it comes to international policies. if there was one, you'd probably see few US president on international court for war crimes. don't store anything in EU, US, Canada, etc countries unless you're white and a part of their group.

  4. He was elected democratically, you left that out. How about some stats of what life was like for the non-rich, prior to Chavez, whilst the elites studied in Ivy League and your bloody Oxford.
