(Reuters) – The U.S. Treasury Department on Wednesday denied a request by Canadian gold miner Crystallex to receive shares in Venezuelan-owned U.S. refiner Citgo Petroleum Corp as partial payment for debt, according to a document seen by Reuters.
According to Reuters, the Office of Foreign Assets Control of Treasury (OFAC), the State Department determined that such a sale would not be consistent with U.S. interests in foreign affairs. However, Washington will reevaluate these factors during the first half of 2022.
