The People’s Power Minister for Foreign Relations, Jorge Arreaza, said that the Venezuelan government, unlike Colombia, will demonstrate, with reliable and irrefutable evidence before the General Assembly of the United Nations Organization (UN), the manufacture of guerrilla acts in Colombian territory to assault Venezuela.

“We will bring irrefutable information to the UN, not absurd elucubrations like those presented by Colombia. We will demonstrate with locations, coordinates, photographs, testimonials, dates and names, ”wrote the Foreign Minister through his Twitter account @jarreaza.

The pronouncement came after the Foreign Minister of the Republic of Colombia, Carlos Holmes Trujillo, used as an excuse an alleged connection of the Bolivarian Government with ELN members and FARC dissidents, to support the request for the activation of the Inter-American Treaty of Reciprocal Assistance (Rio Pact), this Wednesday, in the Permanent Council of the Organization of American States (OAS).

He also stressed that the Colombian government seeks to evade its responsibilities in the recent reactivation of the armed conflict and divert the focus of international attention out of its internal problems.

“The dramatic shows he is giving to the world are mediocre. They victimize themselves, evade and intend to transfer their responsibilities to third parties. The Colombian oligarchy is the one that unleashed the war 70 years ago, the one that feeds on violence and drugs”, said the Foreign Minister.

It is necessary to remember that the Inter-American Treaty of Reciprocal Assistance (Rio Pact) was imposed on our region by the United States in the framework of the Cold War, and its purpose was to legitimize military interventions in Latin America for ideological reasons.
