15 November 2005
Venezuela withdraws her ambassador from Mexico.
Venezuela has withdrawn her ambassador from Mexico and Mexico has followed suit by pulling her senior diplomat out of Caracas. This came after Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez addressed Mexico's Vicente Fox directly via a televison programme, in which he said: "Don't mess with me, sir, because you'll get stung."

The semi-official daily el Universal is blaming Fox for this diplomatic spat, saying that the Mexican President started the slanging match at the recent Summit of the Americas when he charged that President Néstor Kirchner of Argentina was only pandering to public opinion in his country. Fox also warned the former footballer, Diego Maradona, not to get involved in politics. Presumably Pres. Fox felt that his past life as a Coca-Cola executive left him fully prepared to get involved in politics himself.

Chavez simply added his insults to the mix. First by describing fox as a puppy of the Americans, and now with this.

The two countries will now sneer at each other for a while, and then relations will be all smiles again. Such is life in Latin-America.
