June 12 marked two years since the kidnapping of Venezuelan diplomat Alex Nain Saab, while on a humanitarian mission to Iran—his third mission to the country—to try to alleviate the effects of the U.S. economic warfare against Venezuela, reports Kawsachun News.
The kidnapping of Alex Saab is a dramatic and far-reaching effort to enforce the illegal U.S.-decreed policy of economic sanctions. The United States is attempting to impose its will on a country by deliberately attacking the civilian population. Illegal sanctions are a conscious policy of imposing economic havoc to “make the economy scream.”
