Anti-US leaders Hugo Chavez of Venezuela and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad met in Teheran on Saturday, pledging mutual support to one another, state media reported. Chavez' two-day visit came as Iran faces renewed international criticism for its nuclear program and for backing Hizbullah guerrillas, engaged in fighting with Israel since they kidnapped two Israeli soldiers and killed eight others on July 12. Following talks, Chavez pledged that his country would "stay by Iran at any time and under any condition," state television reported. Ahmedinejad said he saw in Chavez a kindred spirit.
