The head of Venezuela's state oil giant Petroleos de Venezuela (PDVSA) said the "imperialist" United States could "go to hell" after it slapped sanctions on the company over alleged ties to Iran.
"The imperialists can go to hell. Their sanctions mean nothing to us. No one is going to impose this kind of action against us," Rafael Ramirez, who also serves as energy and petroleum minister, said late Wednesday.
"We do what best serves the people of Venezuela and what best serves the interests of the Venezuelan state," he added.'
