Foreign Affairs Deputy Minister Rander Peña noted that over 200,000 citizens have returned from different parts of the world under this Plan after they had suffered discrimination and xenophobia.
On Thursday morning, a flight brought 278 Venezuelans from Peru thanks to the air bridge established with Conviasa airlines. Likewise, 97 people returned from Ecuador early this week.
Peña also pointed out that over 142 flights have been carried out to guarantee the reunification of Venezuelan families since the start of the humanitarian operation.

President Nicolas Maduro launched the Returned to the Homeland Plan in 2018. At least 944 people returned to the Bolivarian nation last year amid the pandemic
"Besides supporting Venezuelans' return to their country, this plan implements the inclusive policies the Bolivarian Revolution has," Peña said.
This high-level official also pointed out that Venezuelan embassies attend to all compatriots who wish to return to their country without discrimination and without making ideological distinctions.
