This Thursday, March 5, members of the Bolivarian National Guard (GNB) confiscated a shipment of weapons of war at the international airport of Valencia, Carabobo state, found on a plane arriving from Colombia.

Venezuelan defense minister, Vladimir Padrino López, reported that the Public Ministry is carrying out an investigation into the case. Through a message posted on his Twitter account, Padrino López said arrests have been made.

“Arms traffic? Drug traffic? Colombia? All this is to say, the same. Once again I denounce the conspiracy that is woven from the neighboring failed state, supported by the US, preparing mercenaries to destabilize the country. There are detainees and the Public Ministry is investigating,” said the head of the Defense portfolio.
