In this regard, Minister Arreaza criticized the recent announcement made by Sebastián Piñera through his Twitter account, where he reports that he would soon travel to the Colombian-Venezuelan border with the aim of exerting pressure on the supposedly humanitarian aid the United States government intends to enter in Venezuelan territory. This visit by the Chilean President has raised critical voices, even within his own country, since Piñera would be neglecting the Chilean people who have been affected by the intense forest fires that plague that region. Likewise, the Venezuelan Foreign Minister considered that with this message from Piñera, the competition between the Colombian and Chilean president is demonstrated. «It is not an easy decision for their boss @realDonaldTrump to choose which one of them is his best disciple and subordinate, which deserves his promotion and recognition».
La competencia por hacerse notar entre @IvanDuque y @sebastianpinera está cerrada. No es una decisión fácil la de su Jefe @realDonaldTrump elegir cuál de ellos es su mejor discípulo y subalterno, cuál merece su ascenso y reconocimiento. https://t.co/iq5sGtnXfV— Jorge Arreaza M (@jaarreaza) February 20, 2019
