Ahmadinejad Arrives in Nicaragua

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad arrived in Nicaragua on Tuesday. Ahmadinejad called Ortega, the Nicaraguan President, his “brother president”, Xinhuanet reported.

As CNN reported, despite their cultural differences, Venezuela and Iran have found significant common ground: Both are among the world’s top crude oil exporters, and their leaders are strong allies united by a fierce opposition to what they describe as US imperialism. “These two peoples, in different parts of the Earth, are fighting to establish solidarity and justice,” Ahmadinejad said.
