Air show at celebration of Aviation Day in Venezuela
The air show took place at Air Force base Libertador, located in Palo Negro, northern Venezuela. Vice-President Nicolás Maduro, National Assembly's President Diosdado Cabello, and Defense Minister Diego Molero attended the event
State-owned news agency AVN reported that Venezuela's Vice-President Nicolás Maduro, National Assembly's President Diosdado Cabello, and Defense Minister Diego Molero attended the event.
The ceremony began with the National Anthem and honors accorded to the national flag.
A shipment of over 30,000 tons of phosphate arrived at Puerto Cabello port in late July on board the Shi Long Ling, a Chinese-flagged vessel that began its long journey in northern Africa. The cargo boat docked on July 26 after traveling more than 3,200 nautical miles. Undoubtedly, this would just be considered one in many cargo ships crisscrossing the oceans if it were not for the fact that Venezuela has denounced Western Sahara occupation by Morocco and yet purchases the territory's natural resource products from the occupying power.
