Venezuelan authorities are planning to file a complaint to the UN because of an invasion without warning US reconnaissance aircraft to the area of responsibility of Venezuelan air traffic controllers. This was announced on Twitter by Foreign Minister Jorge Arreas.
According to him, the administration of US President Donald Trump admitted that they really invaded the air zone of Venezuela. “We are confident in their evil intent. We will pass the complaint to the UN, ”the minister wrote.
Earlier, the American aircraft EP-3E Aries II was in the area of responsibility of the airport of the city of Maiquetia, while not communicating with the Venezuelan air traffic controllers.
In addition, on July 19, the Ministry of Defense of Venezuela reported that the plane, intended for reconnaissance, was flying from the northwest of the Caribbean Sea towards Maiquetia. The Pentagon stated that EP-3 Aries II carried out an “internationally approved mission.”
