Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez met with Syrian President Bashar Assad on Saturday and called on Latin America and the Arab world to fight what he called America's imperialist and capitalist interests abroad.

During a meeting at the presidential palace, Chavez told Assad it was an honor to host the Syrian leader on his first visit to Latin America.

"Arab civilization and our civilization, the Latin American one, are being summoned in this new century to play the fundamental role of liberating the world, saving the world from the imperialism and capitalist hegemony that threaten the human species," Chavez said, according the state-run AVN news agency.

Chavez is perhaps Latin's America's most outspoken critic of the United States, lashing out at the US government for purportedly conspiring against him and meddling in the region's affairs.
