Damascus, SANA- Damascus University and the Embassy of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela commemorated on Monday the eighth anniversary of the demise of late Venezuelan leader, Hugo Chavez, as a monument was inaugurated for him inside the campus and a wreath of flowers was put on it.


Later, the two sides opened a painting exhibition hosted by the Faculty of Fine Arts within the first national painting competition under the title “Hugo Chavez,” that included about 25 paintings, and 7 participants were honoured.


Venezuelan Ambassador, Jose Biomorgi, said in a speech that the aim of the event was to acknowledge the contributions of late Chavez and his support for just causes, particularly the Syrian cause which presented to the world a lesson about resistance and struggle in the war against terrorism.
