CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) -- Chavez is optimistic the treatment in Cuba was successful and plans to continue steering Venezuela toward socialism.

Chavez says he finished his fourth and final round of chemotherapy on Wednesday and feels like he has been "born again."

Following the treatment, Chavez said he underwent a series of
medical tests and discussed current affairs with Cuba's former
leader, Fidel Castro.

Chavez spoke Thursday at Simon Bolivar International Airport
shortly after returning to Venezuela from Cuba.

The leftist leader underwent surgery in Cuba in June to remove a
tumor from his pelvic region.
