Uruguayan president urges Venezuelans to remain "calm"
"Life teaches us a simple lesson: there is always time to stand up and start all over again and I believe that worthwhile causes transcend circumstantial men," Uruguayan President José Mujica stressed, expressing his solidarity to Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez
Mujica added, "Chávez's legacy is enduring and hopefully he will overcome the terrible situation he is going through, but if he does not, life will continue."
The Uruguayan leader, who is currently in Venezuela to attend some events scheduled for Thursday, urged Venezuelan people to remain "calm" and stressed that he keeps alert to "uncertain" situations.
"Life teaches us a simple lesson: There is always time to stand up and start all over again, and I believe that worthwhile causes transcend circumstantial men," Mujica remarked, adding that Venezuelans have a great country full of opportunities.
