Obama, Chavez shake hands at summit-Venezuela govt

PORT OF SPAIN, April 17 (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama and Venezuela’s anti-U.S. leader President Hugo Chavez shook hands on Friday at the Summit of the Americas in Trinidad, the Venezuelan government said.

Photographs released by Venezuela’s presidential office showed Chavez, a fierce adversary of Washington policies, smiling and clasping hands with Obama at the start of the summit of Latin American and Caribbean leaders. (Reporting by Patrick Markey; Editing by Eric Walsh)
