Maduro: Chávez planned his comeback to Venezuela and the twits
The Venezuelan Vice-President said that President Hugo Chávez opted to disclose his arrival on his twitter account "to dispel any rumors"
"Well, fellow, I think that the time has come for me to return to the homeland and continue the adjuvant therapy in Venezuela. I have decided to return. Prepare everything for the return!" Maduro quoted President Chávez during an obligatory simultaneous broadcast, AFP cited.
"Let's get everything ready; we will arrive very early in the morning, and I (Chávez) am announcing my return on Twitter," Maduro added. Last Monday, the Venezuelan leader landed in Caracas and was admitted to Dr. Carlos Arvelo Military Hospital after 72 days of convalescence in Cuba from his fourth cancer surgery.
The vice-president maintained that Chávez opted to give the news on his twitter account to "dispel any rumors," in clear reference to the opposition.
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.
