Meanwhile, in Venezuela, a standoff over humanitarian deliveries at the country’s border with Colombia is pitting the Venezuelan military, which is still loyal to Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro, against supporters of opposition leader and self-proclaimed president Juan Guaidó, including the United States. Venezuelan officials described the aid as a Trojan horse.
Freddy Bernal: “For us, humanitarian aid is a Trojan horse. It’s a Trojan horse that is trying to quietly invade Venezuela. According to our constitution, we have the right and the duty to defend our borders peacefully, and, of course, as always, it is being done by the Bolivarian armed forces.”
