Support for Duque Government’s Conclusions on ELN and FARC-D Activity in Venezuela

The United States fully supports the conclusions shared by President Duque at the UN General Assembly calling out the sanctioned Maduro regime for its ongoing support of criminal and narco-terrorist groups in Venezuelan territory. There is no doubt that these groups continue to engage in narcotics trafficking and other criminal activity that continue to destabilize the region. The United States stands by Colombia in its ongoing efforts to protect and defend its territorial integrity.
