The foreign ministers of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of America (ALBA) will meet on Thursday in Caracas to tackle various items in the world agenda, Venezuela's Minister of Foreign Affairs Elías Jaua reported on Tuesday.

Jaua told inter-state TV channel Telesur that the appointment on Thursday will be a "very interesting" political council of the ALBA, where issues such as the reelection of Ecuador's President Rafael Correa and Cuba's Raúl Castro will be discussed. Additionally, a stance will be taken on, among others, the election to be held in Paraguay next April, Efe quoted.

Minister Jaua also referred to the comments lately made by US State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland, about the Venezuelan political state of affairs and the health condition of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez.

"Again, whoever willing to hold relations with Venezuela must do it on the grounds of common respect, non-meddling in internal affairs, as we are not to interfere in the affairs of third countries."
