Evo Morales to Cuba to See Hugo ChavezDecember 22, 2012 | Print |
HAVANA TIMES — Bolivian President Evo Morales flies into Cuba on Saturday to visit with his Venezuelan counterpart Hugo Chavez who is recovering from a delicate operation to fight cancer.
Morales expects to stay less than 24 in Cuba, flying out sometime on Sunday, reported DPA news.
Chavez has been in Cuba since December 10 and underwent his fourth surgery in a year and a half.
While Venezuelan VP Nicolas Maduro assured on Friday that Chavez’s recovery is progressing by the day, a lack of concrete medical information has fed speculation as to the real status of his health including the type of cancer he has.
Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa had visited Chavez in Havana on Dec. 10th before he went into the operating room. Other leaders including Peru’s Ollanta Humala and Uruguay’s José Mujica have also shown interest in visiting Chávez.
