HOUSTON: Venezuela's former ambassador to the United Nations, Rafael Ramirez, has left the United States after being forced to resign by President Nicolas Maduro's government, according to a source with knowledge of his travel plan.

Ramirez, who for more than a decade ran OPEC member Venezuela's massive oil industry, said earlier on Tuesday he was removed because of his opinions.
