CARACAS, June 3 (Itar-Tass) — Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez on Sunday said that his Belarusian counterpart Alexander Lukashenko was planning to visit Venezuela soon.
“Alexander is arriving late this month. He’s going on a trip of Latin America and he wants to visit us. His visit scheduled for June 26 will be a great pleasure for us,” Chavez said after meeting Vladimir Semashko, the first vice-premier of Belarus.
The Venezuelan president said that they had discussed plans of economic cooperation in joint production of tractors, trucks and building equipment as well as prospects of housing construction in Venezuela with the help of Belarusian experts.
Chavez praised Lukashenko for his ability to build his own model of development, following the regrettable fiasco of the Soviet project.
“Venezuela has just started building its own model,” Chavez said.
