Caracas, Nov 28 (Prensa Latina) Vice President of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), Diosdado Cabello, on Wednesday accused the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) of being the world's largest drug cartel.
On his radio program 'Con el Mazo Dando', the Bolivarian leader said that the National Bolivarian Military Aviation had seized 177 planes used to smuggle drugs.
'When the DEA was here, we did not neutralize even one, ever, because the DEA paved the way for them. The DEA is the world's largest drug cartel, it takes drugs from Colombia and transport thems,' Cabello noted.
The PSUV leader pointed out that on Wednesday, the Comprehensive Aerospace Defense Command (CODAI) of the Bolivarian National Armed Forces (FANB) detected and neutralized a plane that was using Venezuela's airspace to transport drugs from Colombia.
He added that those who accuse Venezuela of being behind the protests in Colombia and other countries underestimate those peoples.
'Do not continue to underestimate your people. We have not sent anyone to any country, the only thing we have sent is great spiritual strength of moral, political and emotional support to share a struggle for the peoples' liberation,' he stressed.
He ratified that Venezuela has no need to send anyone to these countries, as the right-wing media have reported.
'Colombia has enough problems for us to be sending people there to make them aware of their problems,' he noted.
Cabello added that no destabilizing campaign will succeed in overthrowing Venezuela.
