A pro-opposition television station called on Saturday for talks with President Hugo Chavez after the Venezuelan leader warned the broadcaster to behave or be shut down. Stepping up his recent verbal attacks on Globovision, Chavez warned its executives Thursday to "reflect" on the station's tough criticism of his government or else it "won't be on the airwaves much longer." Globovision, the last stridently anti-Chavez channel left on the regular airwaves, said Venezuela's socialist president should sit down with the station's managers to discuss the rising tensions between them. "The president should know that if he wants to talk, we're willing," Globovision director Alberto Federico Ravell told reporters. "We should sit down and talk, like they do in civilized countries."
