Indian president worried about Chávez's health

Indian President Pranab Mukherjee expressed on Friday in a communiqué "concern" over the health condition of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, sending him his "best wishes" for a "quick and full" recovery.

The Indian leader specified that he welcomed as a "positive event" the favorable clinical reports concerning Chávez's "stabilization" after undergoing surgery in Cuba for the fourth time due to his cancer.  Mukherjee added that he was praying for Chávez's quick recovery.

In his message, Mukherjee hopes that the Venezuelan leader will have enough "strength and courage to overcome his troubles" and delivered to Venezuela a token of support from the "people of India," Efe quoted.

India-Venezuela relations mostly rely on the energy business.
This is all there is

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.
