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.

But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
