Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has called on his US counterpart Barack Obama to put an end to Washington’s policy of “invading” and “destabilizing” other countries.

Speaking at a Thursday meeting with his cabinet ministers at the Presidential Palace in Caracas, Chavez pointed out that Obama should “forget about invading other nations, destabilizing countries, etc.”

He described the US as socially and economically “fractured” and called on Obama to focus on “governing his own country” instead.

Chavez, who was making the remarks in reaction to Obama’s reelection, said the American “super elite” exploits the rest of the US and manipulates it “through the media.”

During the US presidential campaigns, Chavez said he did not expect either Obama or his Republican rival Mitt Romney to make any change in the relations between the US, Latin America, Venezuela and the rest of the world.

The Venezuelan president has repeatedly challenged the US foreign policy since he took office in 1999.
