Chavez says Venezuela would welcome Russian fleet

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez says Russia is interested in sending a fleet to visit the Caribbean _ and he promises to welcome its ships.
Moscow has not publicly announced any such a plan.
The Venezuelan socialist says he discussed the possibility with Russian envoys who visited him in Caracas and spoke by phone with Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.
Chavez has close ties with Moscow and says he fully supports a Russian fleet's visit to Venezuelan waters.
He told state television Thursday night that Russian envoys are interested in the idea.
