OPEC certifies Venezuela world's largest oil reserves

Help to Somalia

The Government of Venezuela announced that it will contribute with 5 million dollars to try to counter the food crisis in Somalia.

Chavez detailed that about 50 tons of food will be sent on Sunday to said country, in which about 780,000 children are starving as informed the United Nations Children"s Fund (UNICEF) to the international community.

Chavez also informed that a commission of the Bolivarian National Armed Forces (FANB, in Spanish) will be sent to the African country to try to contribute with the peace, since thousands of deaths have been registered in the past months.

“The least we can do is help. We approved 5 million dollars to buy food and help to fight against death and hunger produced by the savage capitalism,” he stressed.

Moreover, president Chavez announced that the Government of Venezuela will work jointly with the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in diverse projects aimed at counter the food crisis in the world.

The president of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez, highlighted this Friday that the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) recognized that Venezuela owns the world"s largest oil reserves.

“We have 20 percent of the oil in the world, which means a lot to us,” said from Cuba in a phone call to the people attending an act in which the Government transfered resources to People"s Power.

The OPEC certified last Monday, in its annual report on proven crude oil reserves, that Venezuela (296.5 billion barrels) has surpassed countries like Saudi Arabia (264.5 billion barrels), Iran (151.17 billion barrels) and Iraq (143.1 billion barrels).

In 2005, Venezuela launched the project Magna Reserva aim to quantify and certify oil reserves in the Orinoco Oil Belt, which are estimated in 1.3 trillion crude oil barrels.

In the last five years, Venezuela"s certified reserves have increased by 339%.
More resources to People"s Power.

The Bolivarian Government handed over on Friday financing ($367.44 million) to diverse communal councils destined to the execution of 5,169 communal projects.

“People do not consider enough wanting to, but they must be able to do. We must transfer power to the people, so they can conduct their social and economic projects to be able to live living with the power in their hands,” Chavez emphasized.

In addition, he committed himself to approve other $349 million destined to People"s Power projects on education, science and technology, food, among other.

First cycle of medical treatment: successful

The head of State informed that the first cycle of his medical treatment, consisting on chemotherapy, was successful.

Chavez is currently in La Havana, Cuba, to continue with his medical treatment from the extraction of a cancerous tumor practiced in June.

“I must inform Venezuelan people that this battle for living continues. I have finished with the first cycle of chemotherapy treatment, which has been successful. I have recovered some weight, now I am at 80 kilos, [before the surgery] I was at 100 kilos,” he commented.

He explained that he is setting for the second cycle of treatment “to eliminate any risk of presence of malignant cells in my body which will soon have its birthday on July 28.”
