The President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Hugo Chávez, indicated Wednesday that he is recuperating well after having undergone an operation in Havana to remove a small lesion in the same area of his body from which a tumor was extracted last June.
Through his official twitter account, @chavezcandaga, President Chávez wrote: “Good evening, my dear compatriots! Here I go, taking flight like the condor! I send you all of my supreme love! We will live and overcome!”
Minutes earlier, the Vice President Elías Jaua said that he had spoken by telephone with President Chávez, who sent his regards to the Venezuelan people from Havana, where he continues to receive post-operative treatment.
“With a firm voice, energetic and victorious, he sends a very fraternal greeting to all of our people, and his love and thanks. I can testify to the firmness with which I heard the president speak, he told me he had had some soup and that it gave his voice strength,” Jaua said in a live broadcast on the state broadcaster Venezolana de Televisión.
