The newly re-elected president of Ecuador, Rafael Correa, is planning a trip to Venezuela to visit his counterpart and ally Hugo Chavez, who returned from Cuba to continue his treatment at home.
On Wednesday, during a meeting with foreign correspondents at the presidential palace in Quito, the Ecuadorian president proposed a visit to the Venezuelan Vice President, Nicolas Maduro, who called to congratulate him on his victory in Sunday’s elections.
“He said that Chavez is recovering, that the treatment is safe, and asked him if it’s a relief or a burden that we visit him. It would be my wish, but these things have to be very delicate because one often hinders rather than support,” said Correa.
Venezuelan Vice President “he said no, there was no way (it was a trouble), so most likely it would be in the upcoming days and weeks we will visit that dear friend Hugo Chavez. All our love and solidarity, and a speedy recovery.”
