George W. Bush administration Monday rejected as unjustified Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez' decision to end a military exchange program with the United States.

"We regret Venezuela's decision to put an end to what has been a fruitful relationship," Adam Ereli, spokesman for the US Department of State, said in connection with the cancellation of a 35-year-old program of bilateral military exchange.

"We think it is an unfortunate (move); we certainly think it is unjustified because this (military) cooperation has been very fruitful for both countries," he said.

Chávez on Sunday announced that the Venezuelan government indefinitely cancelled any military exchange and joint operations with the Unites States.
