TEHERAN, Iran — Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has arrived in Teheran for talks with Iranian leaders expected to focus on efforts to boost cooperation between the allies' oil, gas and petrochemical industries.

Iranian state television says Chavez was greeted by Industry Minister Ali Akbar Mehrabian at Teheran's Mehrabad airport upon arrival early Tuesday morning.

State TV says Chavez will hold talks with his Iranian counterpart, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, during his two-day visit.
