Here is the full statement

The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela rejects the inconsistent statement from the Colombian Foreign Ministry published this Sunday, August 29, 2021, which seeks to increase tensions between countries, generating false conflicts in interactions that can be resolved with the coordination of local authorities, while making a sincere call to the New Granada government to maintain formal contacts that allow permanent communication of all border issues in a practical way and without fanfare.

In this regard, he considers that due to the complexities in the common border, this type of issue requires diplomatic coordination. However, the unwillingness of the Government of Colombia to establish communication channels makes it difficult to work more efficiently in favor of legality at the border.

The Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela reiterates its faithful commitment to the International Navigation Treaties and Agreements and its sincere willingness to cooperate and coordinate joint actions, with the aim of guaranteeing a safe and stable common border for both countries.

Caracas, August 29, 2021.
