The speech by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez in United Nations General Assembly on Thursday turned into an anti-American show.

Chavez, who defined the US as a "terrorist state" in his speech, said Washington does not respect the UN General Assembly resolutions and asked the organization, therefore, to leave this country.

Venezuelan president reminded some suggested Jerusalem as the new place for the UN headquarters; he received high applause in the middle of his speech.

As the world leaders were asked to speak for five minutes and when Chavez kept talking, the presiding diplomat passed him a note that his time was up.

The Venezuelan leader threw the note on the floor and said, "If Bush could speak for 20 minutes at Wednesday's opening session, so can I," and spoke for 20 minutes. At the end, Chavez's remarks got the loudest applause of the summit.
