Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez meets with two FMLN leaders and pledges his support for the guerrilla party's political campaign to take power in El Salvador. The FMLN delegates visited Venezuela in September 2008 to engineer a deal with Venezuela's state-run PDVSA oil company as a means of financing the FMLN's campaign. They arrived in Venezuela aboard a PDVSA-owned executive jet.
Chavez says he's promoting "21st century socialism" in El Salvador and elsewhere in the hemisphere.
