Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has thrown his weight behind Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and pointed a finger of blame at the West for recent unrests in the Middle Eastern country.
Chavez accused the United States and its allies of fomenting unrest and protests in Syria, arguing that Western powers were seeking to topple the Syrian government.
"Terrorists are being infiltrated into Syria and producing violence and death -- and once again, the guilty one is the (Syrian) president, without anyone investigating anything," AFP quoted Chavez as saying on Monday.'
