Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe, on an official visit to Iran, vowed to back Iran against what he called Western interference in that country's affairs, the state media in Zimbabwe reported Tuesday. Mugabe arrived in Teheran on Monday for talks with Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at the start of a four-day state visit. "Iran and Zimbabwe think alike. Some people who regard themselves as demigods say we belong to the axis of evil. Who are they to judge us?" Mugabe said, the state Herald newspaper reported. Criticizing US President George W. Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Mugabe said like-minded "revolutionaries" were unjustly condemned for defending their independence and sovereignty, and "must come together and work out mechanisms to defend ourselves."
