According to ex Cuban leader Fidel Castro, treating doctors of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, operated again last Tuesday, are fighting "with optimism" for the president's recovery, Venezuelan Vice-President Nicolás Maduro read out from a letter forwarded to him on Saturday.
"The name of Hugo Chávez is much admired and respected around the world; everyone, including many of his dissenters, wishes him getting well soon. Doctors fight with optimism for such purpose," reads the letter, Efe quoted.
"We are all moved" by Chávez's absence in the celebration of the eight anniversary of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America (ALBA), Castro noted.
