Venezuela asks Curaçao and Aruba not to let Tucano aircrafts land

TucanoCARACAS, WILLEMSTAD - Venezuela has asked Aruba and Curacao to refuse aircrafts such as the Embraer Tucano on the islands. The President of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro said this in a speech on national television.

Reason for this is that Venezuela thinks that this type of aircraft is being used to carry out attacks on strategic targets in the country. According to Maduro, the islands are informed through The Hague. The Government in the Netherlands cannot confirm this.

Maduro announced last week that a coup was frustrated. The perpetrators used the Tucano to try to topple the government.
