In a post on the social network, the Minister of Defense wrote : “Imperial arrogance, in its siege strategy, does not cease its eagerness to know all commercial activity, air and sea movement in our area of influence, putting at risk air operations in the Flight Information Region (FIR Maiquetía).”
The Venezuelan government has continuously denounced the violation of its airspace by US aircraft in the Maiquetía flight information region.
