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.

They are marching in step to the same tune. There is a coordinated effort to position the idea. The Twitter hashtag #YoSoyVictimaDeLaGuarimba (I'm a victim of "guarimbas", or protest barricades) can be read on all pro-government Twitter accounts, including those of the ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), the National Assembly's Press Office, the state-run food distribution network PDVAL, state airline Conviasa, the Venezuelan embassies in foreign countries, radio stations and the huge media network responsive to the Government's interests and messages.
