Iran’s Ahmadinejad to seek Latin American support

(al-Reuters) – Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will seek support from Latin America’s leftist leaders on a tour starting on Sunday after tough new Western sanctions targeted Iran’s oil industry.

With one eye on his standing at home ahead of March’s parliamentary election, Ahmadinejad will meet other anti-American presidents on a trip Washington said showed Iran was “desperate for friends.”

His first stop is OPEC-ally Venezuela, where Ahmadinejad has been assured a warm welcome by President Hugo Chavez. He will also visit Cuba and Ecuador and attend the inauguration of re-elected Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega.

“We are making absolutely clear to countries around the world that now is not the time to be deepening ties, not security ties, not economic ties, with Iran,” U.S. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said on Friday.

“As the regime feels increasing pressure, it is desperate for friends and flailing around in interesting places to find new friends,” Nuland said.

  1. A truelly brilliant strategy because the whole world knows the United States has a long history of giving huge buckets of crap about what Central and South American governments think.

    Why doesn’t Iran develope a stategic relationship with Bulgaria while they’re at it.

    In all seriousness this attempted outreach means Iran knows Russia won’t protect them anymore because the cold war is over and Russia now has to care what Europe and America thinks.

    Which means All Their Base Are Belong to Us.

    Their only choice now is between early retirement or a pike up the bum.
