Bolivia's president-elect to visit Venezuela
www.chinaview.cn 2006-01-02 14:16:55

    LIMA, Jan. 1 (Xinhuanet) -- Bolivia's President-elect Evo Morales will head for Venezuela on Tuesday to meet with President Hugo Chavez as part of his world tour, his spokesman said on Sunday.

    Morales' Venezuelan visit follows a Dec. 31 visit to Cuba, where he and Cuban leader Fidel Castro discussed ways to strengthen their countries' bilateral relations.

    Morales plans a brief six-hour stop in Venezuela's capital before starting a tour of several countries including European countries, South Africa and Brazil, said his spokesman Alex Contreras.

    Unlike his trip to Cuba, where he took a large support team of 60, Morales' party for his Venezuelan and European visits will be small, including his economic adviser Carlos Villegas, the spokesman said.

    Like Castro, Chavez also, has offered aid to Morales' government, including a program to provide identity documents for thousands of peasants in Bolivia's rural areas, said Contreras.

    Morales won the presidential elections on Dec. 18 with nearly 54 percent of the votes. Castro is the first head of state that Morales has met with since the elections. He officially takes office on Jan. 22. Enditem
