Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro made the shockingly blunt allegation that enemies in Colombia are trying to assassinate him. The indicate rising tensions between the two South American nations as the countries prepare for the upcoming Organization of American States (OAS) and a bitter fight over a tense border dispute.

Maduro made the remarks during a state visit to Vietnam. He said that the conspiracy has the backing the Colombian government although he did not specifically disclose any evidence to back the claim.

Maduro said he would present evidence at a later date.

Maduro and Colombian president Juan Manuel Santos have been trading allegations and rhetoric since Venezuela expelled over 1,000 Columbians living illegally within its borders.

Those expelled were accused of bringing a wave of crime and smuggling along the border.

Diplomats from the two countries are expected to spar as 34 Western Hemisphere nations gather for an OAS emergency meeting Monday evening in Washington. The topic of the meeting is to specifically address the border crisis.
