BOGOTA (Reuters) - Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos has recalled the country's ambassador to Venezuela after the Socialist country closed two border crossings and deported over a thousand Colombians.

The foreign ministers of the two countries met yesterday but were unable to reach an agreement on the situation.
