Venezuelan FM suspends trip to Lima after call from Havana

Venezuelan Foreign Minister Elías Jaua was slated to meet on Friday with Peruvian President Ollanta Humala, who traveled to Havana on January 12. "Jaua's visit will be rescheduled in the coming days," said a diplomatic source in Peru.

Venezuelan Foreign Minister Elías Jaua canceled at the last minute on Thursday an official visit to Lima that was to start on Friday, after being called to Havana by President Hugo Chávez, a source of the Peruvian Foreign Ministry told AFP.

"President Hugo Chávez has called Foreign Minister Elías Jaua to Havana; his visit has been postponed," a diplomatic source that requested anonymity told AFP.

The announcement came hours before Jaua departed from Caracas for Lima. Sources were not available to confirm whether the cancellation of the trip is linked to a health setback of President Chávez, who has been convalescing in Havana for more than two months following a fourth cancer operation.

Jaua was expected in Lima on Thursday night at the military airport, where he was to be received by Foreign Minister Rafael Roncagliolo.

The Venezuelan Foreign Minister was to be received on Friday by President Ollanta Humala, who traveled to Havana on January 12.

"Jaua's visit will be rescheduled in the coming days," added the Peruvian diplomatic source.

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.
