    A single shipment of aid has taken the spotlight in the ongoing political crisis in Venezuela.

    President Nicolas Maduro has blocked food and medical supplies sent by the United States, saying they are an attempt to undermine his authority.

    While that shipment remains stranded in Colombia, trade between the two countries has continued on a daily basis.
