Excerpt:

Lying is so common in diplomacy that it can be hard to tell heads from tails in international disputes. In the recent tussle between Caracas and Ottawa, for instance, Venezuela says it is trying to protect itself from foreign "interference" while Canada claims it is promoting "democracy and human rights". Given the ever-present possibility of a complete disregard for truth on both sides, which government might be more credible in this instance?

Last week Venezuela declared Canada's chargé d'affaires in Caracas persona non grata. In making the announcement the president of the National Constituent Assembly Delcy Rodriguez denounced Craib Kowalik's "permanent and insistent, rude and vulgar interference in the internal affairs of Venezuela."
