Castro – Ahmadinejad mutual admiration society

Talk about birds of a feather flocking together. Fidel Castro and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad are courting each other like a pair of mourning doves in heat or something.

First, there’s this from the Mehr News Agency in Iran:

The most prestigious medal of the Cuban government was bestowed on the Iranian ambassador to Havana, Ahmad Edrisian, for his sincere endeavors to develop friendly relations between Iran and Cuba.

Then there’s this from IRNA, the Islamic Republic News Agency:

…Cuba once again underlined its solidarity with Iranians in defending the nation’s nuclear right and access to nuclear energy for peaceful purposes.

Cuban Foreign Minister Felipe Perez Roque in a meeting with the outgoing Iranian Ambassador to Havana Ahmad Edrisian said that his country will continue to stand by Iran in the face of pressures exerted on and threats facing it.

“Meanwhile, as a friendly country and head of NAM, Cuba will defend Iran’s nuclear rights,” he added.

Wonder when Ahmadinejad and Castro will start dedicating love songs to each other on this radio station?
