EU bans sale of arms to Venezuela after Britain sells riot gear to regimeThe European Union has agreed to impose sanctions on Venezuela, including a ban on exporting arms that could be used by the country’s government against its own people. The decision, made at a meeting of EU foreign ministers in Brussels, comes after a forceful crackdown by President Nicolas Maduro’s government against opposition elements in the country.
