RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - The Venezuelan government on Friday announced the reopening of its borders with Brazil and Aruba, but it will keep the borders shut with Colombia, Bonaire, and Curaçao.
Venezuela's Economy Vice President Tareck El Aissami said the move would "restore all the economic, political, social, and cultural life, and the exchange that takes place on our border," referring to the border with Brazil.
He said that President Nicolas Maduro instructed his government team to "initiate work commissions to gradually reestablish communications and trade with Aruba," an island located off Venezuela's Caribbean coast . . .
