Nothing can separate Iran, Venezuela: Ahmdinejad
TEHRAN - Nothing can damage Iran-Venezuela relations and separate the two nations, because the two countries are determined to stand by each other until achieving their major goals which are peace, prosperity, and progress.
Ahmadinejad made the remarks during a joint press conference with his Venezuelan counterpart President Hugo Chavez in Caracas on Tuesday.
The Iranian and Venezuelan nations have always stood firm against the extremism of arrogant powers, he stated.
In reply to a question about the roles that Iran and Venezuela can play in the management of the world's affairs, Ahmadinejad said that today, even the worst analysts know that the capitalist system has failed to bring prosperity to the people and promote justice in the world.
He went on to say that the logic of capitalist system is merely based on "bullying, weapons and threats," and this means that the system lacks logic and this entails a new system in the world.
Justice, respect for human dignity, the establishment of intimate relations between human beings, and the sitting of the righteous in the positions of power are among the main features of the new world order which can bring prosperity to all mankind.
Ahmadinejad arrived in Venezuela on Sunday and was received by Vice President Elias Jaua and other Venezuelan officials.
During his five-day trip, Ahmadinejad will also visit Nicaragua, Cuba, and Ecuador to meet with Latin American leaders.
Ahmadinejad and Chavez were to travel to Nicaragua on Tuesday to participate in inauguration of newly re-elected President Daniel Ortega.
Ahmadinejad has made five visits to the region since 2005.
