The Foreign Minister of Colombia, Claudia Blum, reported this Wednesday that she delivered a letter to the United Nations in which she expresses great concern about the situation generated in Apure because of the armed clashes between guerrillas and irregular armed groups.
“I have sent a communication to the UN Secretary General and the Security Council in which we report the serious situation that exists on the border. This is due to the support that the illegitimate Venezuelan regime gives to armed groups and narco-terrorists,” she said in a video posted on Twitter.
On the other hand, she said that the Colombian government is willing to provide humanitarian aid to Venezuelans with the support of the international community, and also reported that this situation has been denounced by the country on several occasions.
Blum rejected the position of the Nicolás Maduro regime regarding the events.
“We warn the UN that the dictatorship intends to divert international attention again from its complicit relationship with drug trafficking and terrorist groups. Meanwhile, all the evidence confirms that it is a totalitarian regime that does not respect the law,” she said.
The foreign minister explained that Colombia is concerned about the collapse of Venezuela, highlighting that there is no democracy in the country. “We express our concern about the institutional, social and economic collapse in Venezuela, and the political crisis that has led to the destruction of democracy turning that country into a failed state,” she pointed out.
