On his Twitter account, the minister described these maneuvers as a threat to peace and stability in Latin American and the Caribbean.

According to official sources, the military drills took place last weekend within the scope of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), as part of the partnership agreements signed between the Colombian Government and the intergovernmental alliance.

On board the Colombian frigate ARC Independiente, Colombian Minister of Defense Diego Molano informed that the United States participated in the exercises with a nuclear submarine, the USS Minnesota.

In this regard, Plasencia accused Colombia of yielding to NATO’s warmongering policy and to the imposition of “an anachronistic Cold War agenda, which they now intend to bring to Latin America and the Caribbean with hostile naval exercises involving nuclear submarines,” he noted.

“We regret that a government presiding over the United Nations Conference on Disarmament carries out such provocations in a region with a solid position of principles against the proliferation of nuclear weapons,” the head of Venezuelan diplomacy stressed.
