Panama and Venezuela to restore consular ties

Tuesday, May 20, 2014

Panama and Venezuela agreed to restore consular relations, suspended since March 5 together with diplomatic and trade ties in the wake of a political dispute, the Panamanian Foreign Ministry said.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro unilaterally broke off diplomatic relations with Panama on March 5 after the Central American nation sought to have the Organization of American States examine political strife in Venezuela.

Panamanian President-elect Juan Carlos Varela, who takes office on July 1, has maintained his determination to fully renew relations with Caracas.
