Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez talked again about the critical situation of Libyan strongman Muammar al-Gaddafi. On Thursday night, he requested the international community to avoid bloodshed between “brothers” in Tripoli, the last stronghold controlled by Gaddafi’s regime
Venezuela's President Hugo Chávez talked once again about the crisis in Libya. He said that the North African country is divided. He compared the situation with events allegedly occurred in Bolivia and Venezuela.
"We must prevent that the war policy imposes (…) We have to talk to them, with the opposition. We do not know who they are, but someone must take responsibility because half of the country has been taken" by rebels, the Venezuelan President said. He endorsed the idea of sending a commission to find a peaceful resolution to the uprising.
The Venezuelan Head of State requested the international community to avoid bloodshed between "brothers" in Tripoli, the last stronghold controlled by Gaddafi's regime.
Chávez said that the United States was preparing a raid on Libya to seize control of its oil reserves. He said that an invasion would be a "catastrophe."
A shipment of over 30,000 tons of phosphate arrived at Puerto Cabello port in late July on board the Shi Long Ling, a Chinese-flagged vessel that began its long journey in northern Africa. The cargo boat docked on July 26 after traveling more than 3,200 nautical miles. Undoubtedly, this would just be considered one in many cargo ships crisscrossing the oceans if it were not for the fact that Venezuela has denounced Western Sahara occupation by Morocco and yet purchases the territory's natural resource products from the occupying power.
