CARACAS, Venezuela — Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez had particularly strong words for Israel on Sunday as he hosted Syrian President Bashar Assad on his first visit to Latin America.

"We have common enemies," Chavez said, describing them as "the Yankee empire, the genocidal state of Israel."

The two allies spoke to an audience of Syrian immigrants at a Caracas hotel on Sunday before Assad left to continue his tour, planning stops in Cuba, Brazil and Argentina.

The Syrian leader condemned Israel's blockade of Gaza and said Syria wants peace in the Mideast but not "submission" on Israel's terms.
