Ecuador's FM jumps in solidarity with President Chavez
"We expect the operation to be performed on our friend President Hugo Chávez in Cuba will be successful, so that he can get well and healthy soon"
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."
"We expect the operation to be performed on our friend, President Hugo Chávez in Cuba will be successful, so that he can get well and healthy soon," the senior officer added.
President Nicolás Maduro is not only the heir to the throne, but also to an economic crisis which demanded urgent measures to rectify the course. The crisis showed up in two aspects: a 50% inflation estimate, and shortage of staples ranging between 70% and 98%. These issues might hit the President's poor popularity; considering his feeble electoral victory of 1% over his challenger.
