Given the worsening situation on the border with Colombia, where the day came to shooting, experts fear that Caracas may ask Moscow for military assistance. Earlier, Maduro strongly denied such plans. Today the Minister of foreign Affairs of Venezuela, Jorge Arreaza was less categorical, noting the correspondent of TASS on the question of the possibility of such a request, that “military-technical cooperation between countries plays a very important role. It will develop in the future.”
Despite the fact that U.S. officials have repeatedly stated that the option of military intervention although “lying on the table” along with the other, but will only be considered in extreme cases. Many seem to believe that the invasion is not far off. Retired Brigadier General Anthony Tata shared with FOX Business opinion that “in the next two weeks we will see how this thing is blown up and ignited the… trump has drawn a line in the sand, so he needs to do something that will entail a transfer of power to Huano, Guido”.
