Venezuelan VP has had no direct contact with Chávez
The Venezuelan vice-president stated that the "treatment cycles" have been respected
"We have not spoken to him directly. As you may know, we deeply respect his treatment cycles. We will try to contact him this afternoon (Monday) and as soon as we hear back from him, we will pass on the information," Maduro stated when asked about the reaction of the Venezuelan head of State on the results of the gubernatorial election held on Sunday, when pro-Chávez candidates won 23 out of 20 governor's offices.
On Monday, the vice-president led the ceremony in commemoration of the 182nd anniversary of the death of Simón Bolívar, the Liberator of Venezuela.

A shipment of over 30,000 tons of phosphate arrived at Puerto Cabello port in late July on board the Shi Long Ling, a Chinese-flagged vessel that began its long journey in northern Africa. The cargo boat docked on July 26 after traveling more than 3,200 nautical miles. Undoubtedly, this would just be considered one in many cargo ships crisscrossing the oceans if it were not for the fact that Venezuela has denounced Western Sahara occupation by Morocco and yet purchases the territory's natural resource products from the occupying power.
