Venezuela leader Maduro wants to meet Trump in NYC

Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro has said he wants a face-to-face meeting with US President Donald Trump.

The deals give Russian President Vladimir Putin an even stronger foothold in the Western Hemisphere's largest oil reserves and, potentially, a way to skirt US economic sanctions imposed as punishment for Moscow's election meddling and military intervention in Ukraine.

Maduro also invited the United States to agree to "mutually respectful" dialogue, adding that he will be in NY in September for the United Nations General Assembly.

Sanctions could expand the interests of Cuba, China and Russian Federation in Venezuela's oil business.

"Mr Donald Trump, here is my hand". Even though sanctions prevent Rosneft from doing business with USA firms, the Russian oil giant is able to sell much of that crude to American refiners through intermediaries such as oil traders.

With no winners, Powerball, Mega Millions reach big jackpots
But, folks have a better chance at winning just one of the tickets, rather than both of the tickets. A Powerball ticket costs $2 and a Mega Millions ticket costs $1.

But Maduro struck a defiant stance against what he called America's "imperialist aggression", accusing Washington of being involved in an attack on an army base last weekend by uniformed rebels led by two renegade Venezuelan officers.

On Wednesday, a fifth opposition mayor in Venezuela was removed from his post, part of what the opposition is calling a campaign to illegally remove anti-government mayors from their elected posts.

Venezuela is facing mounting worldwide criticism over a crackdown on opponents and moves to consolidate power, including the selection of the all-powerful assembly controlled by Maduro. The former student activist had been one of the most-prominent leaders of four months of anti-government protests that have left at least 124 people dead and hundreds more injured or jailed.

Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro addresses Constitutional Assembly members during a special session at National Assembly building in Caracas, Venezuela, Thursday, Aug. 10, 2017.

"This regulation aims to fix the malfunction of the public branches", said Rodriguez, adding that ANC has already approved key norms to reestablish peace in the politically roiled nation.

Shares fall on Paris incident, North Korea worries
Former Deputy Defense Secretary Bob Work said in 2014 that Guam increasingly has become a strategic hub for the USA military. In early trading, France's CAC 40 fell 1.5 per cent to 5,141.37 points and Germany's DAX lost 1.2 per cent to 12,144.54.

Experts say individual sanctions have had little or no impact on Maduro's policies and that broader oil-sector and financial sanctions may be the only way to make the Venezuelan government feel economic pain.

The opposition was also motivated by the fact that the ANC supersedes the National Assembly, or Congress, which was under the opposition's control.

He added that Venezuela "will never cede to foreign powers".

He expressed hope that the Assembly's efforts to rewrite the constitution would return "peace" to Venezuela، where political violence has taken more than 120 lives over the past several months.
