Bolivian leader accuses US of continued plotting

La Paz, July 30 (IANS) Bolivian President Evo Morales accused the US of continuing to plot against his government via embassy personnel.

Bolivia expelled Philip Goldberg, the US ambassador to La Paz, eight years ago, saying the envoy conspired to strengthen Bolivia’s right-wing political opposition against Morales’ progressive left-leaning government, Xinhua news agency reported.

“Despite the expulsion…the US government doesn’t stop in its zeal to conspire against our democratic and cultural revolution,” Morales posted on Twitter on Friday.

The remark comes after Interior Minister Carlos Romero met with US Charge d’Affaires Peter Brennan, who acknowledged having met with opponents to the government.

According to the Bolivian News Agency (ABI), Romero told Brennan that the meetings with opposition leaders “antagonised” the bilateral relationship and were considered interferring in domestic affairs.
