Correa: mediocrity and corruption are enemies of the revolution
Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro and his Ecuadorian counterpart are to review the bilateral agenda on energy, the economy, culture, and social issues
As noted by Correa, his visit to Venezuela aimed at talking about efficiency and efficacy to "push forward the projects of our people."
For his part, Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro, who welcomed the Ecuadorian leader, explained that he and Correa would review the bilateral agenda on energy, trade, culture, investment and production economy, and social issues.
Before making their public statements, the two leaders paid a tribute to late Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, whose birthday was commemorated on July 28.
Why did Gerardo come to Caracas? One day he took the decision, handed the car keys to his father, gave him his share of the cloth business they both owned in San Cristóbal and kissed his wife and two sons goodbye. "He told us he was going to continue fighting for Venezuela," the wife says. That was in mid-2013. He has been imprisoned since May 8, 2014.
