( AP ) - President Hugo Chavez on Friday accused Colombia of plotting a military attack against Venezuela.
"A military aggression against Venezuela is being prepared" by Colombia, Chavez said. He warned Colombia not to attempt "a provocation against Venezuela" and said his country would cut off all oil exports in the event of a military strike from the neighboring country.
Chavez did not offer evidence to support his claim.
He made the accusation just as Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was visiting Colombia, saying she and two other senior American officials have appeared in Bogota recently "came to attack Venezuela" in their remarks. Rice did not mention Chavez during her earlier statements in Colombia.
