The Mullahs And fidel
Tuesday, January 24, 2006   By: Juan Paxety

Another meeting between their yes men

Iran's ambassador has once again met with Cuban officials. The Islamic Republic News Agency reports:

Islamic Republic of Iran's Ambassador to Cuba Ahmad Edrisian conferred with that country's Government Minister Gabrisas in Havana on Monday.

According to Foreign Ministry Media Department, Edrisian during the meeting presented a report on bilateral economic ties, Iran's stand on its peaceful nuclear program, and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's recent proposal on status of observing the human rights in the West.

The Cuban minister, who is in charge of the two countries' joint economic commission, too, expressed satisfaction over the improving trend of the two countries' economic and business relations that he said are now stronger than ever before.

Gabrisas also expressed his support for the moves initiated jointly by Iran and Cuba to boost the bilateral economic ties.

The Cuban Government Minister also announced Havana's strong support for Tehran in its natural right to take advantage of the nuclear power.

He added, "Cuba's stands on human rights, too, are quite the same as Iran's and Havana is ready for cooperation with Tehran at all international scenes."

Iran is obviously working to ensure Cuba's support for its nuclear program - probably the support will take place in the UN. But what have the mullahs had to promise fidel in exchange? Even though the mullahs have been in power for 26-years, they are spring chickens in the International manipulation game compared to fidel.

It's always revealing to read these official press releases - sometimes they tell more truth than they intend - "Cuba's stands on human rights, too, are quite the same as Iran's... ." Enough said.
