is also warned that the government crackdown on adding the do a protest as as led to a record number of arrests just from twenty third of germany that if you recall the biggest wins here there were at least we now believe six hundred ninety six people determined. throughout the country as a whole law as a store receiving information. which they're verifying. this is the most the highest number of detentions recorded in a single day since that for at least twenty years kimberly i'll get as more on the story now from washington. as the united states continues to push for venezuela's opposition to gain control of the country's oil wealth new announcement coming from the u.s. state department deputy spokesperson robert palatino announcement that the secretary of state might pompei o has certified the authority of venezuela's interim
president to receiving control certain property in the accounts of the government of venezuela held by the federal reserve bank of new york now the reason the united states says is taking this action is in order to safeguard those assets for the benefit of the venezuelan people this certainly building on those sanctions that were announced on monday in the midst of all of this the united states continuing to say that it is not ruling out some sort of military intervention with regard to the ongoing instability in venezuela asked directly about this on monday the national security advisor would only say that in the eyes of the united states all options are still on the table however there was a lot of interest in a legal yellow no pad that bolton was holding and the words scrawled on it were five thousand troops colombia colombia does share a border with venezuela and this would certainly be a market escalation of u.s.
military involvement if the united states were to position troops along that border . she's been following events for us from neighboring colombia and joins us now from bogota this punitive action from the u.s. comes against the backdrop of a deepening political and economic crisis in venezuela what effect these sanctions likely to have. well marion there's no doubt that these are the strongest yet that the u.s. has taken against the venezuelan government and these sanctions are very different in nature to what has been done up to this point so far u.s. sanctions that were focused on individual officials of the venezuelan government starting with president nicolas maduro and its assets in the united states in this case that it goes through to the core of how the venezuelan government to operate that's because the united states accounts for roughly eighty percent of the
earnings of pay there is that the venezuelan nationals people will companies and pretty match all the hard currency that the u.s. dollars that's a business well and government needs to practically do everything in the country since nobody anymore is accepting the bully bar the venezuelan currency internationally so this means that they're going to put on governments who will even have have a very hard time distributing food in the country and this will make even worse the humanitarian crisis there the state department has said that they have given the opposition to the right to control asset how might this benefit one point. well i think the strategy there is for the opposition to access the money in the u.s. and be able to fund all you many theory and aid in venezuela and try to make up
for the consequences of these sanctions that it is that recently a proposal here on part of the u.s. but i guess that what the u.s. is betting on at that clinic where that had finally reached a tipping point where putting even more pressure on the government will essentially topple them or push my daughter to negotiate the with the opposition the risk here is that there could be on the intrenchments part of my good o. and my little well beyond thermo ground when he accused the united states which he called the evil empire of interfering into venice well ending condominium being responsible for the shortages in the country just too early to say who the venezuelan people will believe here and also remember that the opposition is also pushing for the military to accept an amnesty bill in which sides thank you very much alessandra speaking to us from bogota. with al jazeera live from london most
