Ahmadinejad: World to be freed from 'bullying states'
Upon returning from South America and Africa, Iranian president says world is speedily changing, signs and evidence show few domineering governments have not been able to solve problems
The World according to Ahmadinajed: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Friday upon his return from a visit to Latin America and Africa that "a new movement has started to free the world from domination of a few bullying states."

 

The IRNA news agency quoted Ahmadinejad as saying that that signs, bases and strong points of order and developments in the new world should be identified. He added that the world was speedily changing and the new world was being formed.

 

“Signs and evidence show that a few domineering governments have not been able to solve problems and address public demand," the Iranian president added.

 

Ahmadinejad received a warm welcome on Wednesday from his Venezuelan counterpart Hugo Chavez, who used the visit to brand Israel as a murderous agent of Washington.

 

The Venezuelan singled out a comment by President Shimon Peres, during a visit this month to South America, that his and Ahmadinejad's days in power may be numbered.

 

"We know what the state of Israel stands for - a murderous arm of the Yankee empire," Chavez told joint news conference. "What the president of Israel said, we take as a threat."

 

On Thursday, the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency said his probe of allegations that Iran tried to make nuclear arms was at "a dead end" because Tehran is not cooperating.

 

He is also critical of Iran for trying to change a plan endorsed by six world powers. That plan would delay Tehran's ability to make such weapons by committing it to ship out most of its enriched uranium and have it returned as nuclear fuel.
