Venezuela denounces opportunism of Colombian authorities
In the afternoon the Foreign Minister of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Jorge Arreaza, denounced the recent statements of his Colombian counterpart, Carlos Holmes Trujillo, who announced the waiting for resources from the Organization of American States (OAS) for the supposed “Attention to the Venezuelan exodus” on the border with Venezuela.
“The Colombian authorities give us reason every day: they are experts asquing for resources to the international system. In Venezuela we never beg to the world to attend and take over more than 5 million Colombian brothers and sisters”, said the FM through his Twitter account @jaarreaza.
Las autoridades colombianas nos dan la razón todos los días: son expertos vividores de recursos del sistema internacional. En Venezuela jamás mendigamos por el mundo para atender y asumir a más de 5 millones de herman@s colombian@s. https://t.co/HyL8GEzu21
