The United States Wednesday rejected Bolivia's allegations of meddling in its domestic affairs as "baseless" and expressed regret over La Paz's decision to expel the aid agency USAID.

After five years of trying to normalize tense bilateral relations, "this action is a further demonstration that the Bolivian government is not interested in that vision," said State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell.
