Bolivian President voices support to Venezuelan counterpart
"Mr. President (Chávez), in such a difficult time...good luck! May you get great strength for the sake of the Great Homeland," Bolivian President Evo Morales said from Spain
"On behalf of the Bolivian people, we would like to express our support, our admiration, our respect, and love to the fraternal president. We are and we will always be here with you, Mr. President and Venezuelan people," Morales said in a message disseminated by the public media, AFP cited.
"Hugo Chávez has won so many ideological and economic battles. He has won elections, and he made it through in the first stage of the battle for life. This time, he will pull off victory again, as well as he has done it so many times before," Morales, Chávez's ideology peer, remarked.
"Mr. President (Chávez), in such a difficult time...good luck! May you get great strength for the sake of the Great Homeland," Morales concluded.

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.
