Colombian Minister of Foreign Affairs María Ángela Holguín complained on Wednesday about consistent verbal by the Venezuelan government on ex Colombian President Álvaro Uribe and the accusations of being the mastermind of the ongoing political crisis in Venezuela.
”When one hears such unfortunate remarks as those made yesterday (Tuesday) by Foreign Minister (Elías) Jaua, it is time to ask Venezuela to abstain from commenting in this way on ex-President Álvaro Uribe and express respect for Colombians, Holguín told local Blu Radio.
On Tuesday, the Venezuelan Foreign Minister, like other Venezuelan government authorities blasted Uribe. He is the boss of aggression against Venezuela he insisted. He is a murder, a paraco (paramilitary) who is causing great damages to our homeland; but we will defeat him! he added shortly after.
He's gone too far, said Holguín who recommended the Venezuelan government to take the case to courts in the event of holding evidence of Uribe's or anybody else's accountability.
The Colombian official also called for 'respect for Colombians' and recalled that Uribe was twice elected president of Colombia. She added that the Venezuelan government can't possibly blame on Colombia all their problems”
