Chavez and Lula Venezuela/Brasil.- talk about the "attacks" on U.S. oil countries

CARACAS, 3 Jun. Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez held talks on Thursday at the seat of government with the exmandatario Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva about the "assault" from the U.S. to oil producing nations, just days after Washington sanctioned state-owned Petroleos de Venezuela (PDVSA) for doing business with Iran.

Before the meeting, Chavez told reporters that the meeting would address issues outside the government. "The themes of the new left, are things to talk about today: the issue of Libya, the item you have to talk, the subject of constant aggressions against oil-producing countries," he said.

Lula arrived Thursday in Caracas from Havana, where he met with Cuban President Raul Castro and his brother Fidel. For this Friday the Brazilian leader is scheduled to participate in a forum with business leaders in the Venezuelan capital and visit some places of interest.
