VENEZUELAN PRESIDENT CHAVEZ GESTURES DURING PRESS CONFERENCE IN CARACAS.
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez gestures during a press conference at the Miraflores Palace in Caracas May 14, 2004. Chavez said on Friday that U.S President George W. Bush should kneel before Pope John Paul II and ask for forgiveness for abuses committed by U.S soldier in Iraq. In his latest jibe against the U.S leader, the left-wing president urged Bush to use his planned visit to the Vatican June 4 to announce the withdrawal of U.S troops from Iraq.
