VENEZUELA / COLOMBIA : President Maduro Claims Uribe Behind Assassination Plot.
An effort to stir any lagging loyalties for new President Nicolas Maduro got a dose of nationalism on Friday...when Maduro claimed that former Colombian President Alvaro Uribe has plotted to have him assassinated.
Maduro claimed 'Uribe is behind a plot to kill me. Uribe is a killer.'
Maduro charged that the state murder intrigue involved several right-wing Venezuelan businessmen.
Conservative Uribe dismissed Maduro's charges as 'immature.'
Uribe has constantly attacked current Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos on social media...especially Twitter.
ALSO...new polling indicates that Santos' approval rating has risen to 47%...from 45% in Feb.
