Venezuelan ambassador attends peace talks in Havana
After a Christmas break, the Colombian government and the FARC resumed talks last January 14
Chaderton showed up at Havana's Conventions Palace, the venue of the peace talks, shortly after the arrival of the representatives both of behalf of the guerrilla and the government of President Juan Manuel Santos, Efe reported.
The ambassador made no comments. It is unknown if he will avail himself of this opportunity to visit Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, who was admitted to hospital last December 11 for a cancer surgery.
Venezuela and Chile act as "companions" in the peace talks started last November. For their part, Cuba and Norway are the "guarantors."
"Cocoa is to Venezuelans what wine is to the French," says Alejandro Prosperi, head of the Venezuelan Chamber of Cocoa, using this simile to express the paramount importance or the cocoa industry for the country. Often times heralded as "the best cocoa in the world," a passion for quality dating back to the sixteenth century has made Venezuelan cocoa growers to enjoy high prestige at international level and their product to be among the most sought-after in the world.
