Venezuelan president Nicolás Maduro has announced claims of a plot to destabilize and overthrow his government, organized by the highest levels of Colombia’s government. In remarks made by the newly elected leader and heir to Hugo Chavez’s socialist party, Maduro has said that “he has lost his trust in president Santos” and that he would evaluate whether or not to continue Venezuela’s participation in the ongoing peace process between Colombian authorities and the FARC rebel group.
