TEHRAN (SR) - Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez visited Iran on Tuesday to spend some more "alone time" with soul-mate, Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Iranian state television showed footage of Chavez being welcomed by Ahmadinejad with a lengthy embrace and back rub at the president's office. The men later left for two days of seclusion at Ahmadinejad's country home.
"The two presidents are looking forward to coming together and again pounding out a deep and meaningful expression of their common repect for each other," said Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast.
This was the ninth visit by Chavez to the Islamic republic.
My comments: That's a mental picture I could have done without. I don't know about you, but I need a margarita and a shower.
