Venezuela has rejected the United States’ version of events in the dispute
over Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s passage through US airspace on
September 19.

The diplomatic fallout reached media attention when Venezuelan foreign
minister Elias Jaua told reporters that Maduro had been denied permission
to fly through US airspace.

Venezuelan officials said the presidential flight was prohibited from
passing over Puerto Rico, a US colony in the Caribbean. Maduro considered
changing the flight path to reach Paris, France.
