Colombia-Venezuela Border to Partially Reopen Amid Economic Crisis

Colombia-Venezuela Border to Partially Reopen Amid Economic CrisisVenezuelans, many of whom are suffering amid severe food and medicine shortages, should soon be able to cross into neighboring Colombia to buy basic necessities that are hard to come by in their homeland. Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos and his Venezuelan counterpart Nicolás Maduro agreed on Thursday that that five checkpoints will be open for 13 hours per day for crossings by foot, according to an announcement on the Colombian Foreign Ministry’s website. The opening will almost certainly see Venezuelans pour across the border this weekend to buy food and medicine, as their country suffers from severe shortages amid an economic crisis.
