Nuland Descends in South Africa, Proclaiming De-dollarization Issue Is ‘Just Talk’
Aug. 2, 2023, 2022 (EIRNS)—In a sit-down interview with the South African weekly Mail and Guardian, U.S. Acting Deputy Secretary of State Victoria Nuland—the neocon war hawk who brought you the Nazi Maidan coup in Ukraine in 2014—was patronizing and dismissive of the discussion underway in South Africa and other Global Majority countries about de-dollarization. “It’s not an easy thing to start something new in the financial realm. Leaders will obviously talk about it and they have a right to look at those things. I don’t think it’s as easy a path as some think it is from here to there,” she said. Nuland also said that the U.S. is a “strong believer” in the dollar, and that it brings about “global good.”
The Mail and Guardian noted that the Aug. 22-24 BRICS summit in Johannesburg “is expected to result in further pressure to reassess the dollar’s dominance.” Nuland is in South Africa leading a U.S. delegation participating in the U.S.-South Africa Working Group on African and Global Issues (WGAGI).
