Hugo stopped in Iran today to pledge his country’s support to Iran:
“I feel I have met a brother and trench mate after meeting Chavez,” Ahmedinejad was quoted as saying by state-run television. “We think Iran and Venezuela should share all experiences of each other, stay by each other and they have to be supporters of each other.”
Chavez also signed an Anti-American pact with the Belarus dictator Lukashenko earlier in the week.
