Venezuela on Monday accused neighboring Colombia of planning a bombing campaign or a “military invasion” amid heightened tensions in the region and a mass exodus fueled by Venezuela’s collapsing economy.
“In Colombia, they are planning to revive eras that had ended in human history, like military bombing, a military invasion or the occupation, through blood and gunfire, of a peaceful country like Venezuela,” said Venezuela’s chief prosecutor, Tarek William Saab, according to the state-run AVN news agency. “We will not allow it.”
Saab didn’t provide proof of his allegations, but other regional allies pointed to the weekend visit to Colombia by Admiral Kurt Tidd, head of U.S. Southern Command.
Tidd and Colombian Vice President Óscar Naranjo met in the troubled coastal city of Tumaco on Saturday. According to the vice president’s office, they met to review bilateral efforts to stem the flow of drugs from Colombia’s Pacific coast.
Bolivian President Evo Morales, a staunch Caracas ally, however, called Tidd’s presence “suspicious.”
“Any imperialist military threat against our sister Venezuela, and our region, will be undone by the dignity, sovereignty and unity of our democratic countries,” Morales wrote on Twitter.
On Monday, the commander of Colombia’s armed forces, Gen. Alberto Mejía, suggested he had his hands too full with domestic issues to worry about Venezuela’s accusations.
“We have so many problems in our own country, and that’s what we are solely dedicated to and focused on,” he said at a press conference. “We’re only interested in the problems of the Colombian people.”
