Venezuela protestTHE HAGUE – The Minister of Kingdom Relations, Ronald Plasterk contradicts reports that there is a mass exodus of Venezuelans to Curaçao. This is in reply to the questions posed by the Dutch party D66 in connection with the very disturbing situation in the South American neighboring country.

The questions were raised concerning documents in the media about thousands of Venezuelan refugees.
