BOGOTA — Colombia has said it will seek UN help after Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez instructed his military to ready “for war.”
“Faced with these threats of war by the government of Venezuela, the government of Colombia is weighing heading to the Organization of American States and UN Security Council,” said a statement from President Alvaro Uribe, read out by his spokesman Cesar Velasquez.
“Colombia has not made nor will it make any bellicose move toward the international community, (and) even less so toward fellow Latin American nations,” the statement said.
“The only thing we are interested in is defeating terrorism related to drug trafficking, which has been so unfair to Colombians for so many years.”
