Defense Minister Talks Tough on Colombian GuerrillasMinister of Defense Vladimir Padrino Lopez gave a speech today in which he said that the National Bolivarian Armed Forces (FANB) stood ready to defend Venezuelan territory against any aggressor, including “guerrillas, dissidents, paramilitaries, criminals or drug traffickers”. Padrino Lopez said that he was going to ensure that groups that operate against the Maduro regime, “whatever they’re called”, will be “thrown out of the country”. On these groups, Padrino Lopez said:
There’s no space for them in Venezuela. You have to understand this. We’re coming after you.
I am going to be specially busy this week, and may be unable to dedicate much time to the daily updates.
