Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez met for more than four hours Saturday with ailing leader Fidel Castro, Cuban state television reported. Chavez arrived in Havana late Friday for a weekend visit that will include Sunday's airing of his weekly radio and television program from the central provincial capital of Santa Clara, where the Cuban government on Monday marked the 40th anniversary of the death of revolutionary icon Ernesto "Che" Guevara. "The two revolutionary leaders discussed the history of our nations, the solid and growing bilateral relations, the situation in Latin America and the gravest problems faced by humanity," state television said of the meeting.
