re: Spain/Venezuela: Chavez Demands Apology (Bienvenido Macario, Philippines) (John Eipper, USA, 11/17/07 8:14 am)

The Juan Carlos-Hugo Chavez row, now one week old, has begun to take on
a life of its own. Bienvenido Macario (who sent us the initial report
on the incident) forwards the following update:

Chavez demands apology from Spain's king
Fri Nov 16, 2007


CARACAS (AFP) - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez demanded Friday that
Spain's King Juan Carlos apologize for telling him to "shut up" during
a summit in Chile last week.

Chavez said Juan Carlos should "offer some type of apology."

A diplomatic row erupted at the Ibero-American Summit last Saturday
when the king told Chavez to "shut up" when the leftist Venezuelan
leader called former Spanish Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar a

"The least I'm entitled to as head of state is that the King of Spain
-- who is not the king of Latin America -- offer some type of apology
for attacking me," Chavez told state-run television VTV.

Chavez claims he neither saw nor heard the king, as he (Chavez) was
addressing Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero at the
Ibero-American summit.

"If I had heard him ... I would have stared him down like an Indian,
because I am an Indian and a little bit black and white," he said.

Zapatero on Thursday said the king was merely defending him when he
intervened at the summit -- Chavez interrupted Zapatero's speech
several times before the king told him "why don't you just shut up."

The Spanish prime minister said the incident "took on great
significance" because television cameras picked it up.

The populist and virulently anti-American Chavez made his comments
during the television interview on the eve of a foreign visit that
begins on Saturday with the OPEC summit in Riyadh, followed by a trip
to Tehran and a visit to Paris for his first meeting with French
President Nicolas Sarkozy.

JE comments: The Chavez-Sarkozy summit is scheduled to take place on November 20th. Can Alain de Benoist give us a report on the 'buzz' now taking place about HCh's impending visit?
