President Hugo Chavez said Venezuela is likely to break off diplomatic relations with Israel after both countries recalled their top envoys amid strong differences over the military offensive in Lebanon. "I have no interest in maintaining diplomatic relations, nor office, nor commerce, nor anything else with a state like Israel," Chavez said Tuesday night in a televised speech, without elaborating.
