MOSCOW (Reuters) - Venezuela always honours its financial obligations to creditors, President Nicolas Maduro said on Wednesday in comments to Russia's RIA news agency when asked if his government could offer guarantees it would repay loans to Russia and China.

The comments came a day after Russia said Caracas could have problems servicing its debt to Moscow after Washington imposed sweeping sanctions on Venezuela's state oil company.
