Gathered at the Foreign Ministry, downtown Caracas, leaders from Latin America and the Caribbean on Thursday during a meeting of oil alliance Petrocaribe and the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America (ALBA) endorsed a decision of the Supreme Court of Justice to put off the swearing-in ceremony of Hugo Chávez, who was reelected as president of Venezuela on October 7. Chávez, whose inauguration was scheduled for January 10, is currently in Cuba recovering from a cancer surgery.

Venezuelan Foreign Minister Nicolás Maduro said, "We are very pleased and grateful. On behalf of President Chávez's government, we would like to express our gratitude. This is a historical and difficult moment when true brothers and friends are put to the test," said Maduro, who is also the executive vice-president of Venezuela.

"We call for respect for the court decision," reads a document issued by Petrocaribe and ALBA, as quoted by Maduro. Latin American and Caribbean leaders traveled to Venezuela to attend a rally scheduled for January 10 in support of Hugo Chávez's Government.

The rock of discord

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.
