Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva with President Ahmadinejad. The two presidents’ talks focused on trade cooperation, the need to reform the UN structure and the establishment of a fair global trade system.

"We recognize Iran's right to develop a peaceful nuclear program in compliance with international accords," Lula said in a speech at a news conference with Ahmadinejad.

Bolivian President Evo Morales with President Ahmadinejad. Morales and Ahmadinejad signed a joint declaration supporting the right of all nations to the use and development of nuclear energy for peaceful means.

President Chavez of Venezuela gives President Ahmadinejad a warm welcome at Miraflores Palace in Caracas.

"We are here to welcome you, brother Ahmadinejad. Leader. Brother. Comrade," Chavez said.

Ahmadinejad, in return, called Chavez "my valiant brother."

"A brother," he said, "who is resisting like a mountain the intentions of imperialism and colonialism."


Under the administration of President Ahmadinejad, the Islamic Republic of Iran has successfully worked at developing growing cooperation with Latin American nations, especially those considered leftist or populist. The results are evident during this latest trip by the Iranian president to South America.

Winston thanks for your advice and concern but I'm not Venezuelan
