HAVANA TIMES, Sept. 18 — Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and his Bolivian counterpart Evo Morales arrived in Cuba on Saturday night.  They were welcomed at the Jose Martí International Airport by Cuban leader Raul Castro.

Chavez is in Cuba for his fourth session of chemotherapy after having a cancerous tumor removed in June also in Havana.  He said he hopes this will be the last treatment needed.

Morales is on an official visit and is scheduled to meet with Raul Castro on Sunday.

Both South American leaders are also expected to visit with Fidel Castro during their stay in Havana.
