Venezuela and Colombia recall their envoys

Friday, August 28, 2015

Venezuela and Colombia each recalled their ambassadors to the other country, amid a diplomatic crisis sparked when socialist-run Venezuela closed two border crossings and deported over a thousand Colombians.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro shut the crossings last week after a shootout between smugglers and troops wounded three soldiers.
