Ecuador's Minister of Foreign Affarrs Ricardo Patiño expressed on Sunday solidarity with Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez and trust in a successful operation in Cuba.
"Our supportive, immense embrace shall go to President Hugo Chávez, as he will have to undergo a new operation in Cuba," Patiño tweeted, as quoted by Efe.
He reported as well on a conversation held with Venezuelan Vice-President Nicolás Maduro and gave "greetings from thousand Ecuadorians to President Chávez."

They are marching in step to the same tune. There is a coordinated effort to position the idea. The Twitter hashtag #YoSoyVictimaDeLaGuarimba (I'm a victim of "guarimbas", or protest barricades) can be read on all pro-government Twitter accounts, including those of the ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), the National Assembly's Press Office, the state-run food distribution network PDVAL, state airline Conviasa, the Venezuelan embassies in foreign countries, radio stations and the huge media network responsive to the Government's interests and messages.
