US Claims Venezuelan President Chazev is Aiding Terrorists

June 21, 2008

President Hugo Chavez says the United States is trying to bring him before an international court accusing the Venezuelan government is supporting the Lebanese group Hezbollah to “see if the world will make a move” against him.

The U.S. has charged a Venezuelan official and others with helping Hezbollah. Washington considers the armed group and political party in Lebanon a terrorist organization, and so the U.S. Treasury Department reports that it has frozen the accounts of two Venezuelans: Diplomat Nasr al Din and Lebanese-born businessman Fazwi Kan’an

Chavez spoke out against the accusations on Friday.
