Executive Vice-President Nicolás Maduro said Friday that President Hugo Chávez is going through a "slow" recovery process and that he is "in a battle, clinging to Christ." He recalled that in recent days he was in Havana, Cuba, where he met with the Venezuelan president.
Maduro said the Venezuelan people are "ready to face difficulties, whatever it is." "None of us is Chávez, but we all together are Chávez, if we are united."
In this regard, he said that "everything this Government does is for the aggrandizement of the fatherland." He noted that every year, more "room for happiness" is made in Venezuela.
On the other hand, he reckoned that only unity would help "tame the rabid monster of the right wing," which he termed "pro-imperialist, neoliberal and pro-privatization", and "deeply corrupt."
Following a wave of nationalizations carried out by the late President Hugo Chavez between 2007 and 2012, Venezuela has become the second most frequent respondent to investment treaty arbitration in the world (38 cases in total), after Argentina.
