"The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela refers to the national and international community to condemn shameful statements by the southern command of the United States of America, which indicated that Venezuela was undergoing "excessive control" over their jurisdictional waters, while the warship USS Pinckney (DDG-91) was the tree in our contiguous zone at a distance of 16.1 nautical miles from the coast of Venezuela," - said in a statement the foreign Ministry Jorge Arreaza on Twitter.
