TEHRAN (FNA)- Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez lashed out at the world powers' hostile and aggressive policies towards the world nations, and described his country and Iran as "victims of superpowers' greed".
"Unfortunately hegemonic powers are more aggressive than the past and show unprecedented movements foolishly," Chavez said on the sidelines of ceremony to welcome his Iranian counterpart Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
The Venezuelan president underscored that the Iranian and Venezuelan nations are victims of the superpowers' greed, but are introduced by hegemonic powers' propaganda machine as warmongers.
Chavez noted that Tehran and Caracas have never invaded any country but some other arrogant states have killed thousands of thousands of peoples in their invasions and nuclear bombardments.
"Nations advocate peace and justice; Iranian and Venezuelan governments will do their best to support the human rights, their countries' sovereignty as well as international peace," he reiterated.
President Ahmadinejad, for his part, underlined that Tehran and Caracas are resolved to defend their rights against hegemonic powers.
"Tehran and Caracas will stand together against the hegemonic powers' greed to dominate the world and would defend their rights," Ahmadinejad said.
Ahmadinejad is in Caracas on the first leg of a tour of four Latin American states.
