Chávez welcomes Iran's Ahmadinejad in Caracas
Presidents Hugo Chávez of Venezuela and Mahmud Ahmadinejad of Iran have met quite a few times apropos their strategic partnership
Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez will welcome on Friday in Caracas his Iranian counterpart and ally Mahmud Ahmadinejad. Some days ago, the Venezuelan Head of State termed the visit "important" because of the large amount of current bilateral agreements. They include, particularly, an agreement on manufacturing of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), commonly known as drones with the Iranian aid.
Ahmadinejad is slated to arrive in the Venezuelan capital city after his participation in the United Nations Rio+20 Summit on sustainable development, ending on Friday in Brazil. The tour of the Iranian leader took him to Bolivia also, another partner inside the region, AFP reported.
Chávez and Ahmadinejad have met quite a few times in connection with their strategic partnership and common stance against the United States. They will host a press conference at Miraflores presidential palace.
The very early morning after the presidential election (April 15), both candidates requested the National Electoral Council (CNE) to conduct a full audit of the process: one, Henrique Capriles, because he asserts that the election results are different from the ones announced, and the other one, Nicolás Maduro, in order to clear any doubt regarding his victory, and to reinforce his political stance. Nevertheless, as it is already known, President Maduro changed his mind.
