During a regular session of the Organization of American States (OAS) held on Wednesday, Venezuelan Ambassador Roy Chaderton fired back at the comments of his Panamanian counterpart, Willy Cochez, about the Venezuelan political state of affairs.

"As a politician familiar with tricks, arrangements and interests, I must confess that I would rather argue with the owner of the circus instead of the most flamboyant and funny presenter, yet the owner of the circus is too smart and prefers others to be the spokespersons of his interests," Chaderton replied to Cochez. Earlier, the Panamanian ambassador had expressed doubts about the lawfulness of the decisions made by Venezuelan government branches regarding the inauguration of President Hugo Chávez, AVN quoted.

He added that, as a diplomat, "even out of professional deformation," he refrains himself from expressing his view of the internal affairs of foreign countries, "unless in response to meddling."

"Even at this stage, Mr. Ambassador of Panama, I refuse to admit that your onslaught on my country and my government, as well as your venomous and miserable comments on President (Hugo) Chávez's health, who, incidentally, you expect him to be dead, are made under your government orders," he said when taking the floor.

Last January 10, OAS Secretary-General José Miguel Insulza declared that the organization "fully respects, as it could not be otherwise, the decision made by Venezuela's constitutional powers with regard to the inauguration of the president of that country," based on a judgment from the Supreme Tribunal of Justice.

Living with HIV/AIDS (II)

At first she agreed that I use her real name, that she had no problems with that at all. After all, living with HIV had driven her to help others – as a workshop facilitator giving talks and conducting seminars, or as a volunteer for local AIDS Service Organizations like Acción Solidaria (Solidary Action) and Mujeres Unidas por la Salud (Women United for Health, or Musa), a support group network for HIV-positive women. But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
