Maduro reads message sent by President Chávez to Celac

President Hugo Chávez welcomed the fact that on Monday Cuba took the chair of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (Celac), and said that "Latin America and the Caribbean are telling the United States in one single voice that all attempts to isolate Cuba have and will fail," in a letter written in his own handwriting

Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez on Monday sent a letter signed of his own handwriting in red ink to the Latin American and Caribbean leaders gathered at the Summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (Celac), taking place in Chile, in which he welcomed the fact that Cuba is taking over the chair of the regional bloc.

In the message, read by Vice-President Nicolás Maduro, Chavez asserted that Cuba's presidency means that "Latin America and the Caribbean are telling the United States in one single voice that all attempts to isolate Cuba have and will fail," AFP quoted.

"We are committed to give our full support to Cuba, which holds the pro tempore chair of the community as of the Summit of Santiago. This is an act of justice after more than 50 years of resistance to the imperial criminal blockade," Chávez said in his letter.

Comprising 33 countries, Celac was established in December 2011 in Caracas under the aegis of Chávez, who is convalescent in Cuba since December 11, after his fourth operation for cancer.

The rock of discord

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.
