The European Union announced a new round of sanctions, targeting seven Venezuelan officials, APA reports citing Sputnik.

Brussels originally imposed sanctions targeting Venezuelan authorities after a coup attempt in the Latin American country, when opposition leader Juan Guaido proclaimed himself its new interim president, urging President Nicolas Maduro to resign.

"The EU confirms its readiness to work on further targeted measures", the High Representative said in a declaration.

The sanctions include travel bans and asset freezes levied against seven Venezuelan security and intelligence officers who have been accused of torture.
