Columbian President Alvaro Uribe confirmed during a meeting with Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez, the plotting that involved venezuelan soldiers against the Chavez Government which took place at a Columbian military intelligence building. President Uribe had analyzed documents furnished by Chavez in regard to the plot and confirmed that intelligence efforts against Venezuela take place in the business. Uribe took full responsibility for the conspiracy scandal although so far no charges have been paid over the affair.

ABC NEWS Chavez - Uribe

The two presidents met in Colombia amid a climate of unusual goodwill to discuss the purported Bogota-based conspiracy against the Venezuelan president, which Mr Chavez first disclosed to his Colombian counterpart during a meeting in Venezuela on November 24.

Seven Venezuelans involved in a 48-hour coup against Mr Chavez in April 2002 have been linked to the new plot.

Businessman Pedro Carmona, leader of the failed military-civilian coup, enjoys political asylum in Colombia, where he is working as a university professor.

Mr Uribe refused asylum to six Venezuelan soldiers involved in the coup but gave them permission to live in Colombia while they look for safe haven in another country.

More scandals and plots for Chavez. The two south American nations are seemingly friendly at present after they have been known for much conflict in the past.
