Chavez and Chirac affirm 'common vision', deeper ties


1 hour, 26 minutes ago

PARIS (AFP) - Presidents Hugo Chavez of Venezuela and Jacques Chirac of France met in Paris and agreed to further develop their already close ties.

The meeting, which officials of both countries hailed, was expected to raise hackles in Washington, which is particularly at odds with the leader of oil-rich Venezuela.

During their hour-long meeting "the two presidents examined bilateral economic relations and in particular looked at issues concerning, oil, energy, infrastructure and tourism," Chirac's spokesman Jerome Bonnafont said.

"They decided to set up an organised mechanism for dialogue to further develop economic and industrial cooperation between the two countries," he added

6. 200 years ago we were in Venezuela's position
We were fighting against the tyranny of another empire, and we courted this very same country for help.

12. I mean the country, not just Chirac.
France is more likely to like Chavez's ideology than Bush's.

13. Oh, sorry, I get you.
Hell, the UK is fairly right-wing on the whole and I still think it's closer to Chavez than Bush.
