Venezuela plans renewed relations with the US "at any possible level"
Venezuela's Vice-President Nicolás Maduro has confirmed the appointment of ambassador to the Organization of American States, Roy Chaderton, to restore diplomatic relations with the US, frozen since 2010
"We have no problems in restoring the relations under the basis of respect, and regularize the diplomatic relations at any level." As a matter of fact, the Venezuelan vice-president remarked that whenever the Venezuelan Government seeks to resume relations with Barack Obama's Government, "sabotage is ignited by ultra right-wing sectors with overwhelming power and controlling the industrial, military, and mass media apparatus of the US."
The vice-president also revealed that Chaderton has been in contact with Washington three times upon the express authorization of President Hugo Chávez.

President Nicolás Maduro is not only the heir to the throne, but also to an economic crisis which demanded urgent measures to rectify the course. The crisis showed up in two aspects: a 50% inflation estimate, and shortage of staples ranging between 70% and 98%. These issues might hit the President's poor popularity; considering his feeble electoral victory of 1% over his challenger.
