TVESpain's Prime Minister spoke in favour of José María Aznar, his predecessor, after Hugo Chávez referred to him as a fascist on several occasions‘Why don’t you shut up!’ The words of King Juan Carlos 1 of Spain to the Venezuelan President, Hugo Chávez, in the closing session of the Latin American summit today.

The Spanish monarch lost his cool when Chávez called the ex Spanish Prime Minister, José María Aznar, a fascist on several occasions. King Juan Carlos then got up and walked out of the session in a gesture without precedent, and just in time to hear the Nicaraguan President, Daniel Ortega, criticising Spanish businesses and the role of Union Fenosa in Nicaragua in particular. The King was to return later, but was not present for the singing of the Chilean hymn which closed the debates.Spanish Prime Minister, José Luis Rodríguez Zaptero tried to get Chávez to moderate his speech, saying it was necessary to respect others, speaking in defence of Aznar.‘I can be in a completely different ideological position and I am not close to the ideas of Aznar’, said Zapatero, 'but he was chosen by the Spanish people and I demand that respect’, said Zapatero.To this Cháves replied that he had the right to say what he liked.
