HAVANA, July 21 (Xinhua) -- The United States' sanction threatagainst Venezuela could backfire by reviving its image as anarrogant imperial power in the region, Cuban political observerManuel Yepe has said.
"The United States does not gain very much by imposing sanctionsagainst Venezuela and the socialist government of President NicolasMaduro," Yepe, a former diplomat and ex-director of Cuba's PrensaLatina news agency jordan 11 midnight navy size 12 , told Xinhua on Friday.
The United States took a more explicit stance to backVenezuela's opposition in its struggle for power earlier this week,echoing the opposition's demand that the government cancel the July30 election for the members of the National Constituent Assembly(ANC) to review the constitution and possibly draft a new one.
The government reckons the July 30 election as the best way tolead the country out of the current political and economic crisis,while the opposition sees the move as a power grab by Maduro.
On Monday, a White House statement from President Donald Trumpwarned: "If the Maduro regime imposes its Constituent Assembly onJuly 30, the United States will take strong and swift economicactions."
However, the Venezuelan Foreign Ministry said "it is not thefirst time we have denounced and confronted crazy threats such asthose contained in this unusual document," and vowed to hold thevote as planned jordan 11 midnight navy restock , despite this latest "brutal threat."
"If (the U.S.) goes through with it, Latin America would reactin a big way," said Yepe.
Some 150,000 Venezuelan troops will be guarding 14,515 votingstations, as the country's 20 million registered voters go to thepolls on July 30.
While "the sanctions would make Venezuela's domestic situationworse, it would not benefit the United States to add difficultiesto its cracked hegemonic power jordan 11 midnight navy unc mens ," said Yepe.
The right of calling for a constituent assembly is consecratedin the country's 1999 constitution, he said.
"The Venezuelan state has the power to do what it is doing.There is nothing illegal or punishable about it," he said.
However, Yepe said, Venezuela's aspirations clash with those ofthe "U.S. establishment, which wants to remove from the top theproblem that an independent Venezuela presents for its hegemonicplans in Latin America."
"After the constituent (vote) we will know if it is an effectivemeasure, because right now it is being questioned by many people jordan 11 midnight navy mens for sale ,"he said.
The clash between the government and the opposition became aconstitutional crisis in January 2016, when the latter won controlof the National Assembly and ended a 17-year control by formerpresident Hugo Chavez and his successor Maduro.
According to Yepe, the opposition has erred in resorting toescalating violence and disregarding the opportunities for anegotiated solution to the political stalemate.
"Dialogue would be the solution that benefits everyone,especially its people, who are paying for the increasingly violentclashes with blood," he said.
Anti-government demonstrations have claimed more than 100 livessince April, with several government supporters lynched by angrymobs of protesters.
A destabilized Venezuela is bad for Latin America jordan 11 midnight navy mens 2017 , but a civilwar or foreign military intervention would be much worse, saidYepe, who hopes the country will be able to overcome the .
