No medical reports, photos or video footage of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez were disclosed during the first 24 hours of the president's stay in Venezuela. Neither details on the president's condition were provided by the Venezuelan Government or ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV).

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."

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.
