The assistance of China is part of the agreements that the Venezuelan government has signed with different countries and international organizations to guarantee medicines to the country amid the aggressive international blockade promoted by the Trump regime.


The agreements have been made in the context of the economic blockade that the United States has imposed on Venezuela and which, in addition to leaving losses of billions of dollars, hinders the importation of medicines and thousands of deaths.

The Venezuelan government has expressed willingness to receive assistance through legal channels, in reference to the rejection of the supposed “humanitarian aid” that sought to introduce the opposition with the US government by violent means from the border with Colombia and Brazil last February.
