"I don’t know about any talks on the issue, I don’t have any information. In any case, this is a sovereign decision, sovereign right. There’s nothing to comment on, this is Venezuela’s internal affair", Peskov told reporters when asked whether talks with Russia on the purchase and sale of Venezuelan gold had been conducted.
He said Russia was not involved in operations with Venezuelan gold.
"No. Neither the Kremlin nor the government has anything to do with it. I don’t have any information for anyone here to have to do with it", Peskov said.
The statement comes amid numerous media reports suggesting that Venezuela's gold reserves are being transferred to Russia amid the ongoing political crisis in the country.
Last week opposition leader Juan Guaido proclaimed himself interim president of Venezuela. The Trump administration after recognizing Guaido seized billions of dollars' worth of Venezuela's oil assets. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has accused the United States of orchestrating a coup attempt while Russia, China and several other countries came forward to support Maduro as the country's only legitimate head of state.
