NEW YORK - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez criticized United Nations reforms on Saturday, saying they would permit powerful countries invade developing ones whose leaders are considered a threat.

He singled out a section of the document creating a Peacebuilding Commission that outlines a "responsibility to protect."

Chavez also directed a member of his delegation to arrange support for a project to clean a Bronx river.

Chavez, a self-declared "revolutionary," has often clashed with the U.S. government and has accused Washington of seeking to oust him — a claim U.S. officials have vehemently denied.
