A Latin America expert tells Press TV that the United States politicians in Washington and New York are celebrating the tragic death of Venezuelan President, Hugo Chavez.

Venezuela's leader Hugo Chavez has died after a long battle with cancer. Tearful Vice President Nicolas Maduro announced Chavez' death directly from a Caracas military hospital. Maduro had earlier told the nation that Chavez was given cancer by enemies, adding that the imperialistic powers were seeking to destabilize Venezuela-- both militarily and economically. The vice president said Caracas had expelled an American diplomat for trying to stir up a military coup against Chavez. The Venezuelan Foreign Ministry has also announced the expulsion of a second US official. The Pentagon has confirmed that a US military attaché -- expelled from Venezuela-- is en route back to the United States but US officials have rejected as absurd Venezuela's allegation that the US has been behind Chavez's death.

Press TV has conducted an interview with Richard Becker, a Latin America expert from Berkeley, California, to further talk over the issue.
