CARACAS, Venezuela — Venezuela's government says it will resume fuel shipments to the Colombian state of Norte de Santander next month as the two countries rebuild trade.

Deputy hydrocarbons minister Ivan Orellana told the state-run Venezuelan News Agency on Friday the shipments will resume Dec. 1. They were suspended in August 2009 during a diplomatic fight between the neighboring nations.

Venezuelan officials plan to resume shipments to other Colombian border states later.

The plan to restart fuel shipments was announced in early November during a meeting between Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos. Santos has sought to ease tensions that flared under his predecessor, Alvaro Uribe.
