Adjust font size:

"The mobilization of the National Armed Forces (FAN) is not against the Colombian people," said Rangel at Fort Tiuna, headquarters of the Defense Ministry.

Rangel stated that Colombia headed by President Alvaro Uribe is being used by the United States to take over Venezuela's oil.

On Sunday, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez ordered the envoy of 10 battalions to its border with Colombia after Colombia's Armed Forces headed an aerial and land attack against Colombian rebels in Ecuadorian territory.

The Venezuelan government decreed on Wednesday state of general alert, completing 90 percent deployment of its military force in zones bordering with Colombia.
