Tehran Times: "Venezuela says Iran serves as model for other countries"

Why travel the path to totalitarian power alone when you can do it with a friend?
Venezuela’s National Assembly Speaker, Fernando Soto Rojas, has said Iran’s revolution and its resistance against global arrogance is a model for other countries.

Rojas made the remarks in a meeting with Iranian MP Hossein Sobhaninia, who traveled to Caracas to submit an invitation letter by Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani.http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif

The two sides discussed issues of mutual interest.

Rojas said he attaches great importance to anti-hegemony revolutions in Iran, adding the positive attitude of Venezuelans toward Iran resulted from an important role Iran plays in regional and international arenas.

The Venezuelan official also called for the expansion of ties between the two countries and expressed his readiness to travel to Tehran to exchange views with Iranian officials.

Sobhaninia said Iran’s Majlis is ready to increase parliamentary cooperation with Venezuela’s parliament. [...]
"Parliamentary cooperation"? What does that involve? Maybe Iran could propose some legislation for the Venezuelan parliament to pass?
