RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - The reopening of the border between Colombia and Venezuela will not materialize this Friday, October 8, according to the designated guardian for the Venezuelan state of Táchira, Freddy Bernal, who said that there is a lack of "coordination" between the two countries' authorities.
Caracas last Monday announced the reopening of trade on the border with Colombia, exchanges that will have to be conducted under "strict biosafety measures," in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic.
However, "for the commercial reopening to take place, Venezuelan and Colombian authorities will have to reach an agreement," Bernal said . . .
