Venezuelan Foreign Minister Elías Jaua and his Colombian counterpart, María Ángela Holguín, gathered on Thursday to outline policies aimed at tackling smuggling at the Venezuela-Colombia border.

“This is the right and suitable moment to work jointly in minimizing this scourge (smuggling), which hits Venezuela-Colombia economy,” Jaua stressed.

The diplomat admitted the existence of smuggling in recent years, but claimed it has worsened since 2013.

Further, Jaua remarked that smuggling in Venezuela results in shortage, speculation, and inflation, whereas in the case of Colombia, it hits employment and domestic production.
