Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez on Monday brushed aside America's suspension of arms sales to his country, saying "this doesn't matter to us at all".

"It's the empire and it has a great capacity to do harm to the countries of the world," he said, referring to the US as "an irrational empire." The Venezeulan leader, on a visit to London, also said his government would not respond with punitive measures such as travel restrictions.
