Caracas Reportedly Urges Bank of England to Sell Venezuela’s Gold to UN for Anti-COVID-19 Efforts

from Sputnik News:

The Venezuelan Central Bank has reportedly withdrawn at least eight tonnes of gold from its coffers for export purposes since the coronavirus lockdown began in the Latin American country in mid-March.

Reuters has cited several unnamed sources as saying that Caracas is asking the Bank of England to sell part of Venezuela’s gold reserves and send the proceeds to the UN, in order to help the South American nation tackleĀ the COVID-19 outbreak.
