Alleged Venezuelan Air Violation Angers Colombia

January 28, 2010 By Andrew OReilly

The Colombian government alleged that a Venezuelan military helicopter flew over a Colombian army base in the city of Arauca on Wednesday, according to the Associated Press.

Colombia’s foreign ministry plans to send a letter of protest to the Venezuelan government and called the incident unacceptable.

Relations between Colombia and Venezuela have soured in the past few months due to the agreement between Colombia and the United States that gives the U.S. military access to Colombian bases.
