Communications and Information Minister, Ernesto Villegas, says Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is in a generally stable condition.

This comes after a respiratory infection diagnosed on Monday. It is said that the medical team immediately treated and controlled the infection.

According to the doctors, this kind of infection is one of the most usual after effects of complicated surgery, such as the procedure that Chavez underwent on December 11.

Chavez arrived in Havana last week to continue with his medical treatment for cancer, after recent medical examinations revealed the presence of cancerous cells in the area where a tumor was removed by Cuban doctors in 2011.

The medical team treating Chavez successfully concluded six-hours of surgery last Tuesday.
