"The United States is not the boss here anymore," boasted Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez on Tuesday on arriving in Brazil and hailed the rendezvous of the Latin American summit without "the aegis" or the look of the United States and with Cuba's appearance.

"The important thing for independence in this hemisphere is for us to meet without the Empire (…) A new history, a new stage, is beginning," said the head of state on arriving in Costa do Sauipe, northeastern Brazil.

"We are taking a way that was missed long time ago, the time of (Simón) Bolívar, of (José) Martí, of our founding fathers. Here we are, talking, from the South," he added.

Presidents and representatives of 33 Latin American and Caribbean countries would meet until Wednesday in this Brazilian heavenly spa located in Bahía state, for a summit focused on hemispheric integration.

The behind-the-scenes of the events of April 11, 2002

Alarmed because of the emotional breakdown suffered by his ally and his destiny; Fidel Castro requested asylum for deceased Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez in Madrid back on April 11, 2002. "The story had been much darker and more entangled than what some people's imagination has wanted to believe in and disclose," former Spain's President, José María Aznar, upholds in his autograph book published by late 2013.
