TEHERAN, Iran — Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and his Iranian counterpart declared Wednesday they are united in efforts to establish a "new world order" and warned their enemies would be relegated to the "graveyard."
The rhetoric wrapped up Chavez's two-day visit to Iran meant to boost cooperation between the allies in their oil, gas and petrochemical industries.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said their countries are "united in efforts to establish a new world order" that will eliminate Western dominance over global affairs.
Chavez said any efforts to stop Iran's and Venezuela's progress would fail, and he denounced US "imperialism" saying it is headed for "the graveyard."
The two presidents spoke on Iranian state TV as officials from both countries signed 11 trade agreements on Wednesday.
