Statement of the MFA on the Situation on the Venezuelan-Colombian Border


The Czech Republic is fully aware of the current sensitive state of affairs at the Venezuelan-Colombian border. We condemn the decision to progressively deport Colombian citizens living in the border area and the decision to close down part of this border. We hope, at the same time, that the dispute will calm down as soon as possible, because the current situation has negative impact primarily on citizens of both countries.

The Czech Republic supports the statement of the High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Ms. Federica Mogherini, calling for preventing "further escalation" of the conflict, for finding a "mutually acceptable solution" and "full respect for human rights".
