El convaleciente presidente venezolano Hugo Chávez denunció el lunes el bloqueo a Cuba y la militarización de las islas Malvinas en una carta leída por su vicepresidente Nicolás Maduro ante el plenario de mandatarios de América Latina y el Caribe reunidos en Santiago.


En la misiva de varias carillas impresas, leída por Maduro, Chávez felicita a Cuba porque recibirá la presidencia pro témpore de la Comunidad de Estados Latinoamericanos y Caribeños cuya cumbre se clausura más tarde en Santiago.


"Es un acto de justicia, luego de más de 50 años de resistencia al criminal bloqueo imperial, América Latina y el Caribe le están diciendo a Estados Unidos, con una sola voz, que todos los intentos por aislar a Cuba han fracasado y fracasarán", señala la carta leída por Maduro, que dijo "voy a aprovechar de leer la carta del hermano presidente comandante Chávez".
