Venezuela’s Chavez returns to Cuba for medical treatment

Hugo Chavez

Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez has returned to Cuba for emergency surgery after his doctors revealed that a tumor that had been removed, has surfaced again in his battle against cancer. On Sunday, Chavez appeared on television to tell the Venezuelans of his health condition. He also said one more thing: he wants support for his deputy leader Nicholas Maduro to take over as president if something would go wrong with him. It is the first time Chavez has made statements about a successor. We report on this because there are number of bilateral programs with Caracas, including the Petrocaribe agreement in which Belize gets fuel from Venezuela under extremely beneficial terms.

    There’s no free lunch, so whatever benefit Chavez has given us in fuel prices, he’s getting something of equal value to him in return.

    He’s not my favorite dictator, I hope he leaves office soon; but as a human, I’ll also wish him recovery of his health.
