CARACAS - The governments of Cuba and Venezuela released new pictures and video footage of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez on Tuesday showing him chatting with Fidel Castro and walking outside after undergoing surgery in Havana.

"These images should serve to calm the Venezuelan people down over the health of President Chavez," Information Minister Andres Izarra told Venezuelan state TV after the images were shown.

It was not immediately clear when the footage or photos were taken, but Chavez appeared to be in better condition than in a set of pictures released shortly after the June 10 operation to remove an abscess from his pelvis.
