The Obama administration today said “there will be consequences” to Venezuela’s decision to formally protest President Barack Obama ’s nomination of diplomat Larry Palmer as the U.S. ambassador in Caracas.
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said it is “impossible” to accept U.S. ambassadorial nominee Larry Palmer and called on President Barack Obama to appoint an alternative candidate, something the U.S. has refused to do.
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said that the U.S. nominee for ambassador to the South American nation isn’t welcome after Larry Palmer criticized the government and said the armed forces have low morale.
The U.S. said today it may nominate a new ambassador to Venezuela, a move that might resolve a diplomatic impasse that followed Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez ’s rejection of the White House’s previous nominee.
Michel Moreno, the 42-year-old chief executive officer of the Moreno Group, an oil-services company, has been investing the cash he set aside during the financial crisis in the most well-known U.S. companies.
President Hugo Chavez said he’s ready for the U.S. to expel his ambassador and break off diplomatic ties in retaliation for Venezuela’s five-month refusal to welcome the Obama administration’s choice to be its next envoy to Caracas.
