Lavrov in Caracas, Brasília talks SWIFT alternative amid sanctions

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, on his Latin America tour, urged countries facing similar challenges to “join forces” against  Western sanctions’ “blackmail”, explaining that countries like Venezuela, Cuba, and Nicaragua are also subjected to economic sanctions and embargoes but they continued to “choose their own path.” 

While in Caracas, Lavrov reviewed with his Venezuelan counterpart, Yván Gil, alongside their respective delegations, hundreds of accords that have been inked in the past between the two countries. The agreements covered issues in the financial, energy, agricultural, and other sectors.
