Chavez urges Gaddafi to resist
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez sent a message of support to embattled Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi , urging him to resist and calling on European nations to worry about their own domestic issues.
"There is Gaddafi resisting. Until when will this outrage last?" Chavez said at a meeting of his ministers. Part of the event was broadcast on the state television network VTV.
"Libya is a country of free and restless people that responds only to itself, and not the interests of the empire. Long live Libya and its independence!" Chavez proclaimed.
