Venezuela in selective default, says credit ratings agency

14 November 2017, 06:39 | Hattie Nash

Venezuela's total external debt, which also includes loans from countries like Russian Federation and China, is thought to be as much as $140bn.

S&P's verdict came after the Venezuelan government met with worldwide creditors in Caracas but offered no concrete plan for restructuring its $150 billion debt.

Besides the two bond payments it has defaulted on, Venezuela is overdue on four other debt payments but they were still within the 30 day grace period, S&P said.

The Venezuelan government said Monday that the country has successfully begun the process of refinancing its foreign debt during a meeting earlier in the day in Caracas with bondholders from various countries.

Venezuela has been in a recession since Maduro succeeded the late president Hugo Chavez in 2013.

Previously it had Venezuela in junk bond status.

The agency says "there is a one-in-two chance that Venezuela could default again within the next three months".

The ratings agency said the South American nation had failed to make $200m (£153m) in repayments on its foreign debt.

Per the NFL , The Saints are the second team in the Super Bowl era to win its next seven games immediately following an 0-2 start. They play together better than any other team in the league, and it is reflected in their 8-1 record.

Vice-president El Aissami blamed USA sanctions for delays to Venezuela's debt repayments.

The US has designated vice president El Aissami himself a drug kingpin with whom US entities are barred from dealing.

"We would very likely consider any Venezuelan restructuring to be a distressed debt exchange and equivalent to default given the highly constrained external liquidity", S&P said.

Now, as United States sanctions cut deeper into what's left of the economy, it's increasingly unclear how Venezuela will support itself.
