JeanineWILLEMSTAD - "Coast Guard Caribbean and Venezuela do not cooperate in the fight against drugs and the prevention of arms smuggling." This is according to the Dutch Minister of Defense, Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert in a letter to the Dutch Parliament. Earlier, the Parliament had questions concerning the annual plan of the Coast Guard Caribbean.

Hennis-Plasschaert indicates that there are no bilateral agreements made in this area. She also reported that the Coast Guard is currently not using drones, but the new Long Term Plan (2019-2027) called the attention to the potential use of unmanned aerial reconnaissance.
