Aiding the oppressed and revolutionary nations and expanding the anti-imperialism front in the world are the two crucial missions of Iran and Venezuela, Islamic Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said, underlining that the era of the powers’ clout over revolutionary nations has come to an end.
“Providing aid and assistance to the oppressed and revolutionary nations and expanding the anti-imperialism front in the world are the two crucial missions of Iran and Venezuela,” Ahmadinejad said in a meeting with the visiting Venezuelan President, Hugo Chavez, here in Tehran on Saturday.
Chavez, who is accompanied by a high ranking politico-economic delegation, arrived in Tehran in on Saturday morning in the fourth leg of his tour of six countries.
Ahmadinejad stressed the necessity for exploring all the existing capacities for the further expansion of bilateral ties between Tehran and Caracas, and added, “Iran and Venezuela can pursue joint cooperation in different parts of the world through implementing their bilateral agreements.”
Stressing that the two idealistic and revolutionary nations of Iran and Venezuela will stand beside each other, President Ahmadinejad reiterated, “Expansion of Tehran-Caracas relations is necessary given their common interests, friends and foes.”
Chavez, for his part, reminded the two countries’ cooperation in the campaign against the world arrogant powers, and added, “Tehran and Caracas should help revolutionary nations through further expansion and consolidation of their ties.”
The Venezuelan president started his tour by visiting Libya, then Algeria and Syria.
This is the seventh time that President Chavez visits Iran. He will visit Belarus and Russia at the end of his tour.
