CARACAS - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez returned home on Thursday saying a fourth and final session of chemotherapy in Cuba had been successful.

Wearing a blue and white tracksuit, the 57-year-old socialist leader chatted with government officials and then gave a speech after his plane landed at Caracas's Maiquetia International Airport.

"The four sessions of chemotherapy have been highly successful," he said in comments carried live on state TV. "Successful results, satisfactory results, all the vital signals ... very positive. We can say, thanks to these results, that we have finished the chemotherapy cycle."

Before traveling to Cuba he said his fourth round of chemotherapy would probably be his last.
