Chavez and Ahmadinejad Determined to Alter World Order
October 21, 2010
(ChattahBox World News) – A two-day visit between Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad produced a message that Iran still has friends around the world who will defy US interests. Both Iran and Venezuela share their dislike of the United States as well as being members of OPEC; whose valuable oil exports give them bargaining power in the world market.
According to Reuters Africa, the two countries signed a number of agreements aimed at boosting industrial cooperation.Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has taken it upon himself to represent developing countries that feel oppressed by Western civilization. Ahmadinejad said that Iran and Venezuela are both part of a revolutionary alliance “stretching all the way to East Asia.”
He believes that where he and Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez were once alone in their resistance to the West, but are now part of a larger united front of revolutionary officials. A recent comment made by Ahmadinejad also states that the enemies of their nations will go one day, this is the promise of God, and the promise of God will definitely be fulfilled. This will likely be viewed as a threat by Israel from someone who has often said that the Jewish state will one day cease to exist.
Washington has pushed for more sanctions against Iran in order to pressure it to stop nuclear activities and fears that Iran is aimed in making a bomb. The US is also planning a $60 billion sale of arms to Saudi Arabia which is an ally to the US and neighbor of Iran. Ahmadinejad claims that the country is simply developing peaceful nuclear technology and its foes are attempting to hinder its progress.
Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez also secured a deal with Russia to help build the first Venezuelan nuclear power plant. The United States and many other countries are suspicious of these countries’ nuclear activity as they are enriching uranium to a higher purity than what is needed to generate power.
Iran says that it needs the enriched uranium for a medical reactor in Tehran and confirmed on Wednesday that it was going to proceed with the process.
