Venezuela's opposition-controlled National Assembly has identified $3.2 billion of funds being held at 20 bank accounts in the U.S. from President Nicolas Maduro's government that it's working to safeguard with the help of Donald Trump's administration.
The U.S. government said in late January that some Venezuelan government accounts had been frozen and could be handed over to Juan Guaido, the president of the National Assembly who says he's the legitimate leader of the South American nation. No details about the amounts were ever given.
The figures released on Monday came from Carlos Paparoni, the head of the assembly's finance committee during a press conference in Caracas. The parliament is working globally to try to secure state resources, he said.
