Ahmadinejad: Promise of God Is "The Enemies of Our Nations Will Go One Day"
Marxist Hugo Chavez is visiting Iran this week.
Hugo Chavez and his “brother” Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told reporters today that, “The enemies of our nations will one day go. It is the promise of God.”
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told his Venezuelan counterpart on Wednesday they would defeat their common foes, the latest defiant salvo against Western countries that he says are failing in their attempts to isolate Iran.
At the end of a two-day visit, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez condemned military threats against Iran which the United States and Israel have said they could strike to prevent it getting a nuclear bomb.
The visit by Iran’s long time ally comes a week after Ahmadinejad received a warm reception in Lebanon — home to the militant Shi’ite group Hezbollah. Both diplomatic events are partly aimed to show Washington that Iran still has friends around the world who are willing to confront U.S. interests.
“I should use the opportunity to condemn those military threats that are being made against Iran,” Chavez told a news conference in which the two leaders called each other “brother”.
…”If one day, my brother Mr Chavez and I and a few other people were once alone in the world, today we have a long line of revolutionary officials and people standing alongside each other,” he said.
“The enemies of our nations will go one day. This is the promise of God and the promise of God will definitely be fulfilled,” said Ahmadinejad in a comment likely to be seen by Israel as a threat from someone who has often said the Jewish state will one day cease to exist.
