Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has saluted a group of young people from the Dominican Republic who shaved their heads in solidarity as he undergoes cancer treatment.
State media report that six of the Dominicans arrived in Venezuela to meet with Chavez. Chavez praised the Christian group in a newspaper column Saturday, saying "may God bless you."
He also said he is preparing for a "possible" new round of chemotherapy and that all of his hair has fallen out.
The official TV channel of the National Assembly reported on its website Saturday that lawmakers would take up a request by Chavez to travel to Cuba for more treatment. But it later corrected that report, saying Monday's session won't be related to any such request.
