In his twitter, he said that the incident happened in international airspace over the Caribbean Sea.
Venezuela said that the US aircraft had entered the Venezuelan airspace without their permission. The relations between these two countries have been worse for years.
The reports of US military said that Venezuelan strategic high command “proceeded to intercept the aircraft through two airplanes of the Bolivarian Air Force with the intention of applying the international protocols established by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). As the US aircraft did not comply with such protocols, it was forced to vacate (the Venezuelan airspace)”.
