Maduro Denied in Bid to Pull $1.2 Billion in Gold From Bank of England

Nicolas Maduro’s embattled Venezuelan regime, desperate to hold onto
the dwindling cash pile it has abroad, was stymied in its bid to pull
$1.2 billion worth of gold out of the Bank of England, according to
people familiar with the matter.

The U.S. officials are now trying to steer Venezuela’s overseas assets
to Guaido to help bolster his chances of effectively taking control of
the government. The $1.2 billion of gold is a big chunk of the $8
billion in foreign reserves held by the Venezuelan central bank. The
whereabouts of the rest of them is largely unknown. Turkey, though,
has emerged recently as a destination for freshly mined Venezuelan
gold. The U.S. is leading an international effort to persuade Turkey
-- which is a key Maduro backer, along with Russia, Cuba, Iran and
China -- to stop being a conduit for these gold shipments.
