Chavez’s speech came after the Venezuelan National Electoral Council announced the results of a referendum on a constitutional reform carried out in that nation on Sunday - which was not approved by a very slim margin.

"It was a ’veni, vidi, vinci’ of dignity and ethics," wrote Fidel in the first of the two messages read by journalist Randy Alonso during the Round Table radio and television daily program, which on Monday focused on the referendum in Venezuela.

In the second note sent to Chavez on Monday afternoon, Fidel ratified the ideas he expressed in his reflections ’A People Under Fire’ published by Cuban ’Granma’ news daily in which he expressed that a magnicide or a civil war in Venezuela due to its vast reserves of oil, would generate a deep crisis in the world economy.
