Senior Palestinian official Nabil Shaath commented on the death of Hugo Chavez, noting the former Venezualan President's special relationship to Palestine, Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported on Wednesday.       

 “Today we remember the words of Simon Bolivar ‘I desire to see (Latin) America fashioned into the greatest nation in the world, greatest not so much by virtue of her area and wealth as by her freedom and glory.’ President Chavez endlessly worked not only for freedom and glory for his beloved Latin America, but for all oppressed peoples, including Palestine, a country he kept in his heart," Shaath stated.
