Ecuador's President Rafael Correa, reelected on Sunday with almost 57% of votes, said on Monday that Latin America barely needs "good leaders" able to prevent a comeback to the past and voiced happiness about President Hugo Chávez's return to Venezuela.

In an exclusive interview with South American TV network Telesur the day after his landslide victory, Correa urged Chávez to take care of his health and focus on his recovery, Efe quoted.

"We, Venezuela, Latin America, need you," Correa address himself to Chávez. The Venezuelan Head of State returned to his country after spending two months in Cuba, where he underwent surgery for his cancer last December 11. Chávez was admitted to Caracas military hospital on Monday.

"All of us are necessary, yet nobody is nonexpendable," the Ecuadorian president said. Immediately after, he claimed to admire Chávez, regarded by him as "an icon of the revolution and change in Venezuela and Latin America."

Correa wished his counterpart "getting well as soon as possible."
