Caracas_ The president of Bolivia, Evo Morales, visited the Cuartel de la Montaña in the city of Caracas, Venezuela, to pay posthumous tribute to Venezuelan ex-president Hugo Chávez, five years after his physical disappearance today, Prensa Latina reports. 

On this occasion, the Bolivian head of state highlighted the solidarity of the deceased Venezuelan leader, as well as his humanist thinking and revolutionary vocation.

"We will not see those qualities anywhere in the world," he said.

Likewise, he affirmed that Chávez reminded him that the liberation process comes from the deep suffering, solidarity and feeling of the people, mainly of the most dispossessed and abandoned sectors by capitalist governments.

Morales, who is in the Venezuelan capital to participate in the 15th Summit of Heads of State and Government of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America-Treaty of Commerce of the Peoples (ALBA-TCP), was received at the mausoleum of the deceased president by authorities of that country and members of the Chávez family.

Commander Hugo Rafael Chávez Frías was president of Venezuela from 1999 until his death in 2013.

The influence of this politician transcended the borders of his country by propitiating the emergence in Latin America of a new batch of leftist leaders, opposed to economic neoliberalism and US interference, in addition to showing concern for the most disadvantaged classes and indigenous minorities.

He was, along with the historical leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro Ruz, one of the promoters of the creation of ALBA-TCP.

Precisely at the XV Summit of Heads of State and Government of this body, which is celebrated this day in this city, the life and work of the outstanding leader will be remembered.
