Caracas, 18 Ene. AVN.- Following a visit three days ago to the president of
the Republic, Hugo Chavez, executive vice-president Nicolas Maduro informed
Thursday that Venezuelan leader is conscious of all phases of
post-operative period, after a surgery he underwent last December 11 in
"In general, I see him very calm, very serene, very conscious of all the
phases through which he has passed in the post-operative period," Maduro
said in an interview with Efe and broadcast by website Noticias24.
Maduro, who visited Chavez last Monday in Havana, explained that "all phase
of infection has been controlled," referring to respiratory infection the
national leader suffered.
He added that information on Chavez's health has been handled according to
his world leadership and denounced that, despite official statements,
public opinion has been manipulated against data being provided.
"Hugo Chavez is president and will continue to be so. We have been very
clear of role played by president. However, we are facing a media war,
really miserable on president's life and health. It is a mortuary
journalism, full of evil, particularly installed in Spain, in ABC
newspaper, for example."

government retractors. In this regard, Maduro replied that it is a decision
underpinned by a reliable document.
"They were the ones who forged a letter and president's signature, saying
that he had voluntarily resigned on April 11-13, 2002. Now, they question
the designation done with all of the seriousness and formality in the
Bolivarian government by the one who can designate people, the president of
the republic, who runs foreign policy and has appointed a top chancellor."
VP added that while he was in Cuba, he talked to Fidel and Raul Castro
about bilateral plans for cooperation on health, education, sports, culture
"We do not lose a single second to talk about economic projects between
both nations. Venezuela and Cuba have a set of joint investments and a very
dynamic and multidimensional relation, so we took the opportunity to
address these issues in order to be further developed," Maduro said.
