Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez says he is "doing very well" following cancer treatment in Cuba.
After flying in to the Simon Bolivar International Airport, Chavez met with several of his aides and political allies at the presidential palace in downtown Caracas.
Chavez and one of his confidants chatted about an April 11th 2002 coup that briefly ousted the socialist leader.
Chavez said the military rebellion failed because thousands of his supporters took to the streets to demand his return to power while numerous military officers remained loyal and rescued him from dissident generals who had flown him to a Caribbean island.
Chavez flew to Cuba last week for his third round of radiation therapy.
He began the treatments in late March after having a tumor removed. He plans to have a total of five rounds in hopes of preventing a recurrence of his illness.
The president said he has been recovering well since surgery in February that removed a second tumor from his pelvic region.
