Cuban newspaper changes Fidel Castro's statement on Chávez's health
The former Cuban president stated that it was up to the Venezuelan Government and President Hugo Chávez's relatives to provide information about Chávez's health
Answering on February 3 whether he had news about the Venezuelan president, Fidel Castro said, "much better. He is recovering." However, the electronic edition of Granma said that the statement was "revised and updated" by Castro, and the statement was rephrased as follows, "Yes, everyday. He is recovering, according to the latest medical report I received today, Sunday, February 3 at noon." He added that "although it has been difficult and tough days, our doctors are devoted to this task; that is all I can say. It is up to the Bolivarian Government and his (Chávez's) relatives to provide information."

Alarmed because of the emotional breakdown suffered by his ally and his destiny; Fidel Castro requested asylum for deceased Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez in Madrid back on April 11, 2002. "The story had been much darker and more entangled than what some people's imagination has wanted to believe in and disclose," former Spain's President, José María Aznar, upholds in his autograph book published by late 2013.
