Venezuela's socialist leader Hugo Chavez wished his hard-line Iranian counterpart Mahmoud Ahmadinejad good luck in his re-election bid in Iran's presidential ballot Friday. Speaking to supporters Thursday, Chavez called Ahmadinejad "a courageous fighter for the Islamic Revolution, the defense of the Third World, and in the struggle against imperialism" - a reference to the US government's foreign policy. Chavez also told his supporters that he refuses to join in international criticism of North Korea for conducting an underground nuclear explosion May 25, its first since a 2006 atomic test. "They condemn. I don't. I don't allow myself to be pressured," Chavez said.
