Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez's daughter confirmed a meeting with Bolivian President Evo Morales
On Tuesday, Executive Vice-President Nicolás Maduro and Congress' Speaker Diosdado Cabello chaired a meeting with Bolivian President Evo Morales, who traveled to Venezuela to visit the Venezuelan head of state.
"The Bolivian people are happy, content, and excited about Chávez's return to Venezuela," President Morales told TV multi-state news television channel Telesur.
By press time, no official information about a meeting between the Bolivian and Venezuelan presidents had been released. However, quoting sources from the Information and Communication Ministry, private news TV channel Globovisión stated that the two leaders had actually met. No details were provided.
President Chávez's daughter, María Gabriela Chávez, twitted, "It was a beautiful meeting with our brother, Evo. He has come to support us and express the love of the Bolivian people."
