President Hugo Chavez warned the US ambassador to Venezuela on Thursday that he could be asked to leave the country for saying US companies and investors must receive a fair price for their shares of Venezuela's largest telephone company when it is nationalized. "If you continue meddling in Venezuela's affairs, first of all, you are violating the Geneva agreements and getting yourself involved in a serious violation and could ... be declared a persona non grata and would have to leave the country," Chavez said in response to comments made by William Brownfield.
