Venezuela Questions US Diplomat

The Venezuelan government is to summon the United States ambassador to explain the violation of its airspace by an American military plane.

Foreign minister Nicolas Maduro said the plane was detected near the Caribbean island of La Orchila on Saturday.

The Pentagon has acknowledged that a US Navy maritime surveillance jet DID did stray into Venezuelan airspace after experiencing what it called “intermittent navigational problems”.

The State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said the US respects Venezuelan sovereignty.

But Mr Maduro said the ambassador will still be called in. His colleague, defence minister General Gustavo Rangel Briceno, says he thinks the flyover was deliberate.
