The Ministry of Popular Power for Foreign Affairs of the
Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela raises its strongest protest
to the Government of the United States of America for the

violates international law and is rejected by our Government.

The Ministry of Popular Power for Foreign Affairs of the

United States of America to relate this protest to the
relevant authorities of its country, and demands that the
Government of the United States take necessary steps to
ensure no further violations of this nature, and guarantee
absolute respect for the sovereignty of the Bolivarian
Republic of Venezuela.
