TEHRAN (Fars News Agency)- Iran’s Ahmadinejad and Nicaragua’s Ortega stressed that the two nations will play their significant roles as their power is now on the increase.
Speaking during a private meeting with the Nicaraguan president-elect Daniel Ortega in Managua on Sunday, President Ahmadinejad said that the present status of the Iranian and the Sandinistas’ revolutions is showing a promising future.
“While the two nations are playing their vital role with increasing power and knowledge, our joint enemies are becoming growingly recluse,” he stressed.
For his part, Daniel Ortega pointed to the advent of both revolutions in the year 1979, and named them as twin revolutions.
He further voiced deep pleasure with Ahmadinejad’s visit to Managua, and stressed the need for the promotion of unity and cooperation among independent states, reminding that Latin America is on the threshold of very crucial and fundamental changes.
Elsewhere, Ortega stated, “Unfortunately the system of hegemony could eventually find a grip over the Nicaraguan government, but it could never succeed in dominating the beliefs and ideals of the people who are the actual origins of power in each country and society.”
Ahmadinejad, heading a high-ranking delegation, arrived in the Nicaraguan capital Managua Sunday morning on the second leg of a three-nation tour of Latin America.
The Iranian president was officially seen off by Ortega when he left the country a few hours later.
He arrived in Quito, Ecuador, Sunday night on the last leg of his three-nation Latin American tour.
