Venezuela threatens oil, trade measures in vote row with US


Venezuela threatened Monday to take measures affecting energy and trade if the United States resorts to sanctions in a row over disputed presidential elections in Caracas earlier this month.

"If the United States takes recourse to economic sanctions, or sanctions of any other kind, we will take measures of a commercial, energy, economic and political order that we consider necessary," Foreign Minister Elias Jaua said in a television interview.
