Chavez besøg i Iran styrker de to uafhængige staters samarbejde

Hugo Chavez, Venezuela’s præsident opfordrede under hans besøg i Teheran,  Mahmoud Ahmadinejad til at samarbejde om at bekæmpe imperialismen (to cooperate to defeat imperialism.)  

Chavez, a staunch critic, of the US described Ahmadinejad as his “ideological brother”, during a meeting in Tehran on Sunday, his third in the two years.“Cooperation of independent countries such as Iran and Venezuela has an effective role in defeating the policies of imperialism and saving nations,” blev han citeret for at sige ifølge det officielle nyhedsbureau IRNA. Chavez ankom lørdag til hovedstaden Teheran for et to-dages- besøg efter besøg i Rusland og Hviderusland hvor han has tried to consolidate political opposition to the US.
He was accompanied by his foreign, communication, energy, industry and economy ministers.

Din mening
*  KOMMENTAR * Det fordybede samarbejde mellem Iran og Venezuela understreger at der ikke bare er tale diplomatiske skaktræk fra de to ledere.  Uanset at supermagten i Washington ikke bryder sig om dette samarbejde er det til gavn – ikke bare for de to folk –  men samarbejdet er også et praktisk eksempel på samarbejde mellem et muslimsk land og et “kristent” land hvor  Præsidenten Hugo Chavez kalder sig “kristen-katolik”. Det “kristent-muslimske” samarbejde mellem Iran-Venezuela er medvirkende til at med afsløre de fremherskende ideologiske teser om “civilisationernes sammenstød”. En teori som er fremført af højre-liberale kredse i USA.Så når danske og amerikanske medier i et enstemmigt kor kalder Mahmoud Ahmadinejad “religiøs konservativ” er det et skældsord beregnet på at skræmme folk der er kommet frem til at det iranske samfund faktisk er mere progressivt end den samfundsform der hersker i det  Washington-allierede Kongerige Saudi-Arabien hvor kvinderne nægtes retten til at stemme. Betegnelsen “religiøs konservativ” er derfor ikke begrundet i den Iranske Præsidents praksis – som nu Irans samarbejde med Venezuelas Chavez –  en “kristen katolik”, men i en modvilje mod det iranske styres uafhængighed af Washington. De amerikanske (- og israelske) mediers historier om at “Iran truer Staten Israel” (og dermed Palæstina og Jerusalem) med nuklear udslettelse hører  hjemme i den fantasiverden som disse medier har skabt. Det rækker med at slå fast at et muslimsk land aldrig skulle bruge atombomber, for :–   “det er imod vores tro” som en talsmand for den iranske regering udtrykte det” – og især ikke mod en af muslimernes helligste steder, nemlig Jerusalem. Kun amerikanske politikere og medier kan tænke sig at bruge atombomber mod andre lande og folk.  En tyv tror som bekendt at hver mand stjæler.  Iran har samme ret til at udvikle atomkraft og atomvåben som Pakistan,Israel og Indien, men USA bør vise et godt eksempel ved at følge FN`s Charter og den internationalt anerkendte Folkeret og høre op med truslerne mod Iran.

The two leaders are expected to sign a number of agreements including the construction of 7,000 houses, a petrochemical plant and a vocational training centre in Venezuela.They are set to inaugurate construction of a joint petrochemical plant on Monday in the southern Iranian city of Asaluyeh, which will produce a million tons of methanol every year, IRNA said.En lignende plant would be built in Venezuela to give Iran better access to Latin American and Brazilian markets and provide easier reach to India and Pakistan for Venezuela.In addition to their anti-US stance, the two countries enjoy warm ties and co-operation in the energy sector. Iran is Opec’s second largest producer of crude oil and Venezuela is also a key member of the international oil cartel.Anti-US alliesAhmadinejad toured Latin America in January in a bid to seek support from the region’s left-wing leaders who share his opposition of US international policies.Chavez is the most vocal supporter in Latin America for Iran and its nuclear programme, which is suspected by the US and Britain to be a cover for weapons development although Tehran insists it is purely peaceful.His trip comes as Iran is being threatened with toughened UN Security Council sanctions for its continued refusal to freeze uranium enrichment, a process which makes nuclear fuel but can also be the core of an atomic bomb.

USA har igangsat en international kampagne mod hvad de kalder “Irans udvikling af  atomvåben(masseødelæggelsesvåben) 

The US, which broke diplomatic ties with Iran in 1979, has been spearheading The US is spearheading the international campaign to stop Iran’s enrichment programme and has never ruled out a military option to halt the drive. Denne kampagne mod “Irans atomvåben” er omtrent ligeså fyldt med “sikre beviser” og “pålidelige fakta” som de engelske og amerikanske mediers kampagne –  for fem år siden – mod “Iraks masseødelæggelsesvåben”  der kan “nå London på 45 minutter” som den Socialdemokratiske statsminister Tony Blair påstod. En amerikansk journalist blev – nyligen – taget på fersk gerning i at “fejloversætte”  et ord i Ahmadinejads udtalelser om Irans “atomkraftsprogram” hvort “kraft” blev udskiftet med  “våben”. Udtalelserne om “atomvåbenprogrammet” gik verden rundt . På samme måde er Ahmadinejads ord om Staten Israels fremtid blev fordrejet.  Iøvrigt bor der tusinder af jøder i Iran som lever sikrere og tryggere end de der bor i Staten Israel. *Læs Pierre Gilly´s kronik: Hvad den iranske præsident egentligt sagde */Venezuela and several other Latin American countries are members of the Non-Aligned Movement that, at a summit last year, emphatically backed Iran’s right to nuclear energy.Venezuela was alone in September 2005 in opposing a resolution at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) that found Iran in violation of nuclear safeguards, paving the way for its referral to the Security Council.Mohammad Ali Hosseini, Iranian foreign ministry spokesman, said: “Latin America offers good opportunities for co-operation. Common political views and positions help us to have better co-operation.”Before heading to Iran, Chavez met the Russian and Belarus presidents, and urged a global revolution against Washington.He drøftede også mulige purchases of submarines and other defence equipment from Russia, arguing that these are needed to defend his country against the US.* * * * * *

BBCnews skriver følgende om betydningen af Chavez beøg i Teheran

Venezuela deepens ties with Iran.

 Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his Venezuelan counterpart, Hugo Chavez, have launched construction of a joint petrochemical plant in Iran.

The plant will cost some $700m and take four years to complete, with a second one scheduled to be built in Venezuela.

This is the Venezuelan leader’s third visit to Iran in two years.

In a defiance of Western powers Venezuela is a strong supporter of Iran’s nuclear programme, and the two nations are both major oil exporters.

“Iran and Venezuela – the axis of unity,” read the official posters at the site of the plant in Assalouyeh on the Gulf coast.

Mr Chavez and Mr Ahmadinejad marked the official start of building by instructing the drivers of two mechanical diggers to start working, Reuters news agency reported.The plant will be a facility to produce methanol – an alcohol which can be used as a solvent or an element in fuel.Mr Chavez’s visit comes as Iran faces the threat of toughened sanctions from the United Nations over its refusal to freeze uranium enrichment.The US and the European Union accuse Iran of enriching uranium as part of a nuclear weapons programme, but the Iranians say its activities are for peaceful energy production.Mr Chavez has been a vocal defender of Iran’s right to have a nuclear programme.Co-operation between Venezuela and Iran has been growing in the last couple of years.
