Latam governments wish President Chávez getting well soon
Presidents and senior government authorities from all Latin America jump in solidarity with the Venezuelan leader
High ranking officers from several Latin American governments wished Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez getting well soon after his fourth surgery due to a cancer in the pelvic area. In the meantime, in Venezuela, additional official news was awaited as to his health condition. Beginning on Tuesday, the Venezuelan government released a couple of communiqués, as cited by news agencies.
In Montevideo, Uruguay's President José "Pepe" Mujica asked "some friends" to host a mass for anyone wanting to pray for the health of the Venezuelan Head of State, DPA reported.
The Panamanian government also wished President Chávez "prompt recovery and happy return" to his country of origin, Efe quoted.
For his part, Ecuadorian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Integration Ricardo Patiño tweeted: "I wish you a prompt, successful recovery, my friend."
Bolivia's Lower House endorsed a resolution to voice solidarity with the Venezuelan people and best wishes for the president's quick recovery.
Chávez underwent surgery on Tuesday in Cuba, for the fourth time in a year and a half because of cancer.
A simple reason: there is oil galore, would suffice to explain Guyana's actions. Another explanation lies in the little or none efforts made by the Venezuelan government to thwart the move by the Guyanese. This is certainly not a new problem, but a problem only recently highlighted because oil is involved. But what other resources does the disputed area hold? For most of us it is a section on the map with black and white stripes on it, a depiction of something distant, alien, a nothingness not worth paying much attention to in geography classes back in elementary school.
