Chirac congratulates Chavez on reelection
font size    

French President Jacques Chirac congratulated Venezulan President Hugo Chavez on Wednesday for his reelection.

"Soon after the Venezuelan people renewed their confidence to you, I want to adress to you, personally and in the name of all the French people, my most warmly congratulations," Chirac said in a congratulation letter made public by the Presidential office.

"I know that French enterprises, which have already contributed a lot to the economic dynamism in Venezuela, like to strenghten their activities in a long term," he said.

Chirac said he hoped that the two countries would reinforce their relationships, especially in hydrocarbon, transport and health areas.

Chavez, who has governed Venezuela for the past eight years, was formally declared winner of Sunday's election, garnering 62.89 percent of the vote, far ahead of his rival Manuel Rosales, governor of the western oil state of Zulia, who also campaigned on a populist platform.
