KAMPALA, Uganda— Iran's president is in Africa this week to build alliances to evade stronger UN sanctions for his country's nuclear program, ease its international isolation and strengthen its economy.

Both Zimbabwe and Uganda, the two countries Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is visiting, have something to offer."Iran hopes to persuade non-permanent members of the UN Security Council, such as Uganda, to vote against new sanctions or at least abstain from the vote," said Alireza Nader, an Iran expert at the Washington-based Rand Corp. "Zimbabwe's isolation from the West also appeals to Iran, which is coming under stronger pressure due to its ongoing nuclear program."

In Uganda, Ahmadinejad will discuss his country's nuclear program with Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni.
