FM congratulates Ambassador Chaderton for defending Venezuela at OAS
Venezuelan Foreign Minister Elías Jaua said that Ambassador Roy Chaderton gave his Panamanian counterpart Guillermo Cochez "a fair and timely" response
On January 16, Panamanian President Ricardo Martinelli told the Venezuelan foreign minister that Ambassador Cochez's opinion on the situation of Venezuela represented neither the Panamanian People nor the Government, and asked him to give President Hugo Chávez and his family his excuses, a press release read.
Similarly, the Panamanian president informed the Venezuelan foreign minister about the communiqué promptly issued by the Panamanian Foreign Ministry in rejection of Cochez's statements at the Permanent Council.
