SAO PAULO—Brazil's foreign minister says Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez seems to be improving after cancer surgery.
Brazil's state-run news agency Agencia Brasil cites Foreign Minister Antonio Patriota as saying that Brazilian officials are monitoring daily the health of Chavez.

Patriota says that the latest news on Chavez indicates "stabilization and even positive developments."

Chavez underwent his fourth cancer-related surgery in Cuba last week. He's remained secretive about the exact nature of the cancer that he's been battling for more than 18 months.

CARACAS, Venezuela - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has a respiratory infection after undergoing cancer surgery in Cuba and must have "complete rest" for the next few days, the government said Tuesday.

The socialist leader is in stable condition after being diagnosed with the respiratory infection on Monday, Information Minister Ernesto Villegas said on television, reading a government statement.

"It has been controlled," Villegas said. "In the opinion of the doctors, this type of ailment is one of the consequences that appear with the greatest frequency in patients who have undergone complicated surgeries."

Medical experts say that it's common for patients who have undergone major surgeries to suffer respiratory infections and that how a patient fares can vary widely from a quick recovery in a couple of days to a fight for life on a respirator.
