Maduro asks his FM “to take steps” to “rebuild” relations with Colombia

Venezuela’s President Nicolás Maduro said late on Friday that the Venezuelan government is assessing the means to reset relations with Colombia. “There must be reciprocity and communication, just the way it was before many of you (Colombians) believed you could enter and conquer Caracas.”

“Colombians living in Venezuela know what (late President Hugo) Chavez’s democratic revolution is. Hopefully, a way will be found for rebuilding relations between our governments based on the truth and the principles of respect,” he added.

Maduro reported that Foreign Minister Elías Jaua has “instructions” to take steps for the “reconstruction of relations with Colombia.”

He urged the Attorney General’s Office to delve into “the apparent violations” of the Venezuelan laws. Reference was made to the visit Venezuelan opposition leader Henrique Capriles paid to Colombia earlier this week and will pay to Peru in the next few days.
