It was a perpetual love fest of sorts between Iranian President Mahmood Ahmadinejad and Venezuela dictator Hugh Chavez. The two met during an official visit to Caracas this week.
“We feel at home here and among our brothers … we’re going to be together until the end,” Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told his Venezuelan counterpart Hugo Chavez during a visit to Latin America on Wednesday.
The leaders have denounced the United States “imperialism”, and Chavez called Israel “a murderous arm of the Yankee empire.”
The Venezuelan leader recently returned from a trip to Cuba where his met his hero Fidel Castro and his brother President Raul Castro. “They asked me to give you a hug for them,” he told Ahmadinejad.
There was business involved. The men announced direct flight service between Tehran and Caracas coming soon.
