Iranian President going to Cuba
It appears that Iranian President Mahmoud AhMADinejad has accepted an invitation to visit Cuba from President Fidel Castro, in gratitude for Cuba's support of Iran's nuclear program, the official Granma newspaper said on Tuesday. Fidel really must have lost his mind to be siding up with AhMADinejad.
AhMADinejad accepted the invitation in Tehran from Cuban Ambassador Felipe Perez Roque. During his visit, the Iranian leader will attend the September 11-16 Non-Aligned Summit in Havana, the daily said. What an horribly APT time for the Iranian President to be on this side of the world.
On Saturday in Vienna, Cuba, Venezuela and Syria voted against a resolution of the International Atomic Energy Agency to refer Iran to the UN Security Council over a nuclear program the West suspects is weapons-oriented. SURPRISE SURPRISE.
The Iranian President recently publicly thanked Cuba for its "dignified and principled" position during the IAEA's special meeting, which ended in a 27-3 vote in favour of reporting Iran to the UN council.
Separately, Granma announced that Iranian Parliament President Ghulam Ali Haddad Adel has accepted an invitation to visit Cuba from Cuba's National Assembly.
Cuba just doesn't get it...... You'd think that they would use some commom sense and try to prevent dangerous weapons from getting in the hands of what seems to be a rationally unbalanced person.
