National Security Minister Stuart Young has reiterated the Government's position of non-interference and non-intervention in Venezuela, as riots have broken out amid an attempted coup.

The minister issued a statement Tuesday that said little more than what has been said by the government before.

The following is a statement the Minister Young.

"It has been reported that certain elements of the Venezuelan military have indicated support for Mr. Juan Guaido and that support has resulted in disturbances in Venezuela.

Trinidad and Tobago maintains its principled position of non-interference and non-intervention in the internal affairs of Venezuela and hopes that the Venezuelan people will resolve their affairs peacefully.

I advise that the relevant Divisions of the Ministry of National Security have been working together and have been focused on securing our borders and we will continue to do so."
