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.
