Dutch MPs want clarity threats Maduro

Dutch ParliamentTHE HAGUE – Members of Parliament for the Dutch party VVD, Han ten Broeke, Ronald Vuijk and Andre Bosman want clarity from the Minister of Foreign Affairs Bert Koenders about the threatening language of the Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.

Maduro accused the Netherlands and the U.S. of again violating Venezuelan airspace. Apparently, last week a U.S. military plane that took off from the FOL military base in Curaçao flew in the Venezuelan airspace near the island of Margarita, which is just off the coast of Venezuela.

President Maduro stated that his country will not accept this and will take action. What he means exactly, the Venezuelan President did not say.

The Dutch MPs now want to know whether their government will respond to the accusations and threats from Maduro. The MPs also want to know how their government will do this. They want clarity on whether the Venezuelan airspace was actually breached.
