Venezuelan President Nicolas - Alexandre Petion downtown Port-au-Prince
The head of state of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, officially toured Haiti for the first time after becoming President. It was his first official visit to the Caribbean nation after the former Venezuelan President, late Hugo Chavez visited Haiti in 2007. Maduro spent the entire day with the Haitian President Michel Martelly and the two wore white guayaberas. Both the Presidents were accompanied by their respective wives. Maduro went to downtown Port-au-Prince before reaching the Presidential grounds in Haiti and viewed a statue located in public plaza. He also visited a museum before the official talks between the two Presidents started on the grounds where the National Palace stood before the 2010 earthquake.
