The United States congratulates Panama for its vigorous defense of democracy and human rights and for promoting stability in the hemisphere.
We applaud Panama’s March 27 announcement that it will tighten financial oversight of 55 Venezuelans and 16 Venezuelan entities, and support other efforts in the region to fight the abuse of financial systems by corrupt actors.
The United States urges others in the hemisphere to stand with Panama and to take action in support of the Venezuelan people and their right to have their voices heard in free, fair, and transparent elections.
