Tehran — Iran and Venezuela urged for new global order whereby changes could be brought about to the world, the official IRNA news agency reported Thursday.
During a meeting with his Venezuelan counterpart Hugo Chavez on Wednesday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that both Iran and Venezuela are “determined for overthrowing the unjust ruling system of the world and for the establishment of a new world order based on the rules of justice”, the report said.
“The two countries’ relations have always been important and brotherly, but now after our last rounds of talks in Tehran and the reached agreements they have been improved to a strategic level,” Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying.
Ahmadinejad said that Tehran and Caracas share proximity of stands on international issues.
Chavez, for his part, said that eleven years ago with the victory of the Bolivarian Revolution in Venezuela, Iran and Venezuela began a campaign which was aimed at establishing a new world order, according to IRNA.
The agreements reached are of great importance for the two nations, Chavez said, “through such cooperation we are expanding the dimensions of our unified will towards the establishment of a new world order based on justice and equality of all nations.”
On Wednesday, Iran and Venezuela signed eleven memorandums of understanding (MoU) in diverse areas of oil, natural gas, textiles, trade and public housing projects.
Chavez reiterated his country’s support for Tehran in face of West’s imposed sanction pressures and military threats against Iran over its controversial nuclear program.
Heading a delegation of economists and politicians, Venezuelan President arrived in Tehran late Monday night for talks on diverse areas, especially of energy cooperation, with Iran.
