The United States is looking at how China and Latin America are deepening ties

Less than a week after the start of Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine, Juan Sebastian Gonzalez, senior director of affairs in the Western Hemisphere at the US National Security Council, in an interview with the Voice of America (an asset in the State Department) listed that “sanctions against Russia are so robust that they will have an impact on the governments that have economic ties to Russia, and that is by design. So Venezuela will start to feel the pressure; Nicaragua will start to feel the pressure, just as Cuba will .

A recent article in Foreign Affairs magazine, which through the Council on Foreign Relations unofficially serves as a kind of discussion forum for the US State Department, entitled “The Eurasian Nightmare,” defended the thesis that Washington has no choice but to fight Russia and China at the same time.

Gonzalez, however, suggests that the Joe Biden administration’s strategy not only considers attacking the main front in the east (Moscow and Beijing), but also opens a front in the south – secondary but important – against three Latin American countries that have challenged Washington most in recent years. years (Venezuela, Nicaragua and Cuba).
