Reuters exclusively reports U.S. weighs measures in response to Iran fuel shipment to Venezuela

Reuters reported exclusively that the United States is considering measures it could take in response to Iran’s shipment of fuel to crisis-stricken Venezuela. The United States has a “high degree of certainty” that Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s government is paying Iran tons of gold for the fuel, Reuters reported, citing a senior U.S. official. The official declined to specify the measures being weighed but said options would be presented to Trump, a fierce critic of the governments of both Iran and Venezuela.
