Latin America Heats Up

Mexico: 'Case closed' with Venezuela

Quote:
MEXICO CITY, Mexico (AP) -- President Vicente Fox's office said Tuesday it would no longer get involved in the diplomatic flap between Mexico and Venezuela that prompted both countries to withdraw their ambassadors.

"For us, the case is now closed," Fox spokesman Ruben Aguilar said. "We hope that in coming weeks and months, relations cool off so that we can re-establish them to their highest level."

The dispute began last week when Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez called Fox a "puppy" of the United States. Tensions escalated on Sunday when Chavez warned his Mexican counterpart during a six-hour radio and television broadcast: "Don't mess with me, sir, because you'll get stung."

Fox demanded an apology or said Mexico would recall its ambassador to Venezuela. Caracas promptly ordered its ambassador home to protest what Foreign Minister Ali Rodriguez called an unjustified ultimatum by Mexico.

Things are quite tense, Fox is being attacked a lot by the mexican media, he's done a fine job in fucking up relations with Cuba, Argentina and now Venezuela, he needs to learn when to speak and when to be quiet

look I am not a fan of Chavez, but there's ways to say something without breaking up relations with a country just because you disagree in something. Like I said Fox has screwed relations with many countries in Latin America and that recent stupid statement about african-americans in the US was just as stupid.
