Colombia’s Foreign Minister Carlos has released a statement denying a report that his government going to provide the United States will military bases so that the latter could launch a possible military invasion in Venezuela.

For several days now, Colombian officials have refuted speculation that the country will take part or support military intervention in Venezuela.

Foreign Minister Carlos Holmes said Colombia will continue “acting politically and diplomatically” so that democratic order is restored in Venezuela and new elections are held.

This statement he made after US national security adviser John Bolton seemed to be broadcasting big plans for the regime-change operation in Venezuela when he was photographed with a yellow legal pad on which he’d scrawled “5,000 troops to Colombia.”

Colombia’s foreign minister says his government doesn’t know why U.S. national security adviser John Bolton had “5,000 troops to Colombia” written on a notepad he held during a news conference announcing new Venezuela sanctions.

In a brief address Monday evening, Foreign Minister Carlos Holmes said Colombia does not know the “importance and reason” for Bolton’s note.

A few days ago, the Colombian Defense Ministry also reported that the Colombian government is not going to provide the United States will military bases so that the latter could launch a possible military invasion in Venezuela.

“No,” the Colombian Defense Ministry’s representative said, answering the question, whether Bogota was going to provide Washington with military bases needed for a possible operation against Caracas.
