October 13, 2007 01:57

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez announced plans to travel to Cuba late Friday to meet with his close friend and ally Fidel Castro. During a speech to an indigenous group in western Venezuela, Chavez said his time there was limited, because he had to leave soon for Havana. "The one I have to see tonight is Fidel, but he'll wait for me," Chavez said. "From here I'm leaving for Cuba." Chavez said he planned to discuss efforts to advance a regional integration initiative known as the Bolivarian Alternative for the Americas, and would meet with Castro's brother Raul "and the entire high government of Cuba."
