CARACAS, WILLEMSTAD - Nicolás Maduro participated in the Con El Mazo Dando program where he spoke with Venezuela’s most powerful politician Diosdado Cabello. Here Maduro assured that the Portuguese-flagged ship docked in Curaçao’s harbor, brought mercenaries to Venezuela whose mission was to attack military units and political objectives.
"There is a superior power, outside Curaçao, that does not allow the authorities access to identify who are the 160 people inside the ship, which confirms the hypothesis that it was being used to bring mercenaries," said Maduro.
He also indicated that from the north they prohibited the Curaçao authorities from accessing the ship that cowardly rammed the Venezuelan Navy ship Naiguatá, causing this to capsize, "But we are going to give them a surprise," he said.
He then referred to the US military deployment in the western Caribbean, leaving according to him, the Pacific route of most of the drugs from Colombia to the United States. "Venezuela has the world record against drug trafficking," he stressed.
He reiterated the threat: "The Bolivarian Fury is capable of reaching every last corner."
