India hails Iran’s fight for right
Indian External Affairs Minister S. M. Krishna says his country wants a developed and prosperous Iran, lauding Tehran for standing up for its rights.
“India praises Iran for fighting for its interests,” Krishna said in a meeting with Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in the Iranian capital Tehran on Tuesday.
“We are both developing nations and we should make use of each other’s capabilities and experiences in order to make progress,” he added.
The Indian minister further called the G15 summit in Tehran successful and effective.
The Iranian president, for his part, referred to the common perspectives of Tehran and New Delhi, and stressed that “common cultural and historical backgrounds as well as regional interests require the two countries to expand cooperation to control the current regional conditions.”
“The global situation is changing rapidly and the powers which dominated the economic and political sectors are now facing a defeat,” Ahmadinejad further explained.
The Iranian president also had a separate meeting with Venezuelan Foreign Minister Nicholas Maduro where both sides stressed expansion of bilateral and multilateral relations.
