Rangel: Venezuela does not have to report to the US

Venezuelan Executive VP José Vicente Rangel Tuesday replied to US Department of State Spokesman Adam Ereli's statements by saying that the US administration keeps on "attacking the Venezuelan government  and its people."

"Venezuela does not have to account to the US administration for what is happening here. Venezuela will provide the information requested by the Colombian government in due time and under no pressure," said Rangel in a press release issued by the Vice President's office.

Rangel accused the US for "fanning the confrontation flames" instead of assuming an "inconspicuous stance which favors understanding between Colombia and Venezuela."
