Peruvian president gives President Chávez support
"Certainly, if necessary" (I will travel), noted Humala, queried by journalists whether we would visit his Venezuelan counterpart Hugo Chávez in Cuba
Peruvian President Ollanta Humala said late on Wednesday that he is likely to visit Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez once he recovers from a cancer surgery that he underwent on Tuesday in Cuba.
"Certainly, if necessary" (I will travel), noted Humala after being asked by journalists whether we would visit his counterpart at this moment.
The Peruvian President, who was participating at a Christmas official ceremony at the Government Palace, did not specify if he would travel to Cuba.
For the third time since last weekend, Humala has come out in support of the Venezuelan president.

President Nicolás Maduro is not only the heir to the throne, but also to an economic crisis which demanded urgent measures to rectify the course. The crisis showed up in two aspects: a 50% inflation estimate, and shortage of staples ranging between 70% and 98%. These issues might hit the President's poor popularity; considering his feeble electoral victory of 1% over his challenger.
