Maduro breaks ties with Panama over 'conspiracy'

Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro greets to supporters before a military parade in Caracas.

Venezuela's President Nicolás Maduro said today he was breaking diplomatic and commercial relations with the Panamanian government due to a "conspiracy" against him.

"We're not going to let anyone get away with interfering with our fatherland, you despicable lackey, president of Panama," Maduro said in a speech to commemorate the anniversary of late socialist leader Hugo Chávez's death.

Followers of Venezuela's late socialist leader Hugo Chávez flooded the streets today to mark the anniversary of his death, a sad but welcome distraction for his successor who has faced a month of violent protests.

The military parade and other events to honor 'El Comandante' were a chance for Maduro, 51, to reclaim the streets and show opponents that he too can mobilize his supporters.
