Chavez Wishes Fidel Quick Recovery

Hanoi, Aug 1 (Prensa Latina) President Hugo Chavez, who is visiting Vietnam, wished a speedy recovery to the "good friend, forger of ideals, and dream builder" Cuban President Fidel Castro, who underwent surgery on Monday.

Chavez devoted several minutes of his speech before Vietnam´s Chamber of Commerce in this capital, to highlight the Caribbean Island leader´s stature as politician and revolutionary.

He subjected his health to an extreme stress, due to days of international and national exhausting work, which caused him a severe intestinal crisis, with constant bleeding "that forced me to undergo complicated surgery," the leader explained in an announcement to the nation.

The surgery will oblige him to rest for several weeks, away from his duties and responsibilities.

The Venezuelan president said that as soon as he learned about it in the morning, through international television stations, he called Fidel´s office and felt calmed when he was told that he was recovering well, without further complications.

He stressed that "more than a triple friend, Fidel is an infinite friend," referring to the idea of friendship of Sergio Rodriguez, the teacher of the Liberator Simon Bolivar, and historic figure in Venezuela.
