Santos gets ready to attend Chávez's inauguration
The Colombian president held a telephone conversation with Venezuela's Vice-President Nicolás Maduro on the eve of Christmas
Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos is prepared to attend the inauguration of this Venezuelan counterpart Hugo Chávez and wished him getting well soon one more time.

As stated by Caracol Radio and quoted by DPA, Santos spoke on the phone with Venezuela's Vice-President Nicolás Maduro to confirm that he and his Foreign Minister María Ángela Holguín plan to attend the sworn-in ceremony. According to the news, the event could be postponed because of Chávez's health condition.
