Jan. 11 (Bloomberg) -- Peruvian President Alejandro Toledo said Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is ``destabilizing'' Latin America by interfering in his neighbors' internal affairs.

``Chavez is president of Venezuela, not of Latin America,'' Toledo said in an interview with Radioprogramas in Lima. ``He can have all the petrodollars he wants, but that doesn't give him the right to destabilize the region.''
