CARACAS (AFP) - 

President Nicolas Maduro on Wednesday recalled Venezuela's top diplomat from the United States in protest at the renewal of a year-old US decree calling his country a security threat.

"Enough arrogance, double standards, condescension and intrigue," the leftist leader said as he announced he was summoning charge d'affaires Maximilien Arvelaiz back to Caracas. "Bolivar's Venezuela deserves respect."
