(AFP) - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez will arrive in Iran for talks with his counterpart and fellow America critic Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, his Tehran office has said.
Spokesman Ehsan Jahandide told AFP the two leaders would focus on "bilateral relations and a review of previous agreements, and before he leaves Tehran a number of agreements will be signed."
Chavez is also due to open a new Venezuelan embassy in Tehran, meet Iranian business leaders and receive an honorary medal from Tehran University. No further details were given, reports Trend.
The two-day visit will be Chavez's fourth to the Islamic republic since 2000. The Iranian and Venezuelan leaders are both fierce critics of the US administration as well as being OPEC members.
