SOT, Nicolas Maduro, President of Venezuela (Spanish): "With Colombia, as you know, what we want is peace. Peace and brotherhood. President Ivan Duque, deputy president Ivan Duque, has a provocation plan. 'False positive' for the month of September. He intends to mount a 'false positive', to attack Venezuelan territory and then go to the United Nations Security Council and put on a cheap political show. At the cost of an armed conflict. That's why yesterday I issued an orange alert to all the forces of the Bolivarian national army along the border with Colombia to protect the sovereignty of Venezuelan land. To protect the peace of Venezuela. Orange alert, and the troops are already deployed. And now we are going to deploy the missile system." *MULTIPLE SHOTS AT SOURCE*
