Ahmadinejad, Chavez unite against ‘imperialism’


by: The News Int’l

TEHRAN: Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez railed against the West on Saturday, pledging to deepen their ties and stand together against the United States and world powers the two perceive as imperialistic.

Chavez is on an 11-day tour that has taken him to Libya, Algeria, Syria and Iran.

The leftist Venezuelan leader is also to visit Belarus, Russia and Spain in the trip he has described as a bid to build a “multi-polar world” and counter US influence.

After landing in Tehran late Friday his eighth visit to Iran so far Chavez said Iran is “a true strategic ally, a staunch ally“ to his country and defended Iran’s right to a nuclear programme.

He praised Iran for standing up to alleged attempts by “Western forces” to destabilise it after the June presidential election that brought his ally Ahmadinejad a second term in office. These attempts have failed, Chavez said, and “Iran has been strengthened.”
