Washington's new ambassador to Venezuela said Saturday that he hopes to improve tense relations with the government of President Hugo Chavez. Patrick Duddy, who was previously a senior official in the State Department's Latin America bureau, told reporters that he had "a very cordial conversation" with Venezuelan Foreign Minister Nicolas Maduro after he formally presented his credentials as the new US envoy in Venezuela. "I hope to capitalize on the very substantial connections that have flourished for so many years between our countries, and to try and strengthen a relationship that has a long history, one that I think our two countries consider to be very important," he said.
