U.S. forbade Maduro to overfly Puerto Rico
Posted On 20 Sep 2013
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro yesterday denounced the U.S. ban on overflying the airspace of Puerto Rico, because both countries have no diplomatic relations.
This weekend, the successor to Hugo Chavez had planned a trip to China, so it was necessary to fly the Caribbean island, so now the Air Force will have to take a longer route.
The U.S. embassy in Venezuela has not yet ruled on the matter, unlike the Bolivian President Evo Morales who rejected the ban and said he would propose to the presidents of the ALBA not attend the UN General Assembly, next week in New York.
