Peru's Humala gives President Chávez support
"Certainly, if necessary" (I will travel), noted Humala, queried by journalists whether we would visit his Venezuelan counterpart Hugo Chávez in Cuba
Peruvian President Ollanta Humala said late on Wednesday that he is likely to visit Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez once he recovers from a cancer surgery that he underwent on Tuesday in Cuba.
"Certainly, if necessary" (I will travel), noted Humala after being asked by journalists whether we would visit his counterpart at this moment.
The Peruvian President, who was participating at a Christmas official ceremony at the Government Palace, did not specify if he would travel to Cuba.
For the third time since last weekend, Humala has come out in support of the Venezuelan president.

That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
