Correa calls US sanctions on Venezuela a 'bad joke'

Ecuador’s President Rafael Correa blasted the U.S. government’s listing of Venezuela as a national security threat while slapping sanctions on seven Venezuelan officials through an executive order signed by President Barack Obama.

“An executive order by Obama declaring Venezuela a national security threat and declaring a national emergency to face this threat... It must be a bad joke, which reminds us of the darkest hours of our America, when we received invasions and dictatorships imposed by imperialism... Will they understand that Latin America has changed?” said the Ecuadorean leader Tuesday through his Facebook account.
