Nicolas Maduro, speaking after visiting Chavez in Cuba, said he met his president twice and had spoken to him.
"He's totally conscious of the complexity of his post-operative state and he expressly asked us ... to keep the nation informed always, always with the truth, as hard as it may be in certain circumstances," Maduro added.
