Ahmadinejad Continues Latin America Tour
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad visited Cuba Wednesday as tension between the United States and Iran continue to grow.
The killing of an Iranian nuclear scientist in Tehran further strained relations between the two countries with Iranians blaming Israel, the CIA and Britain’s intelligence agency for the killing.
“Iran’s enemies should know they cannot prevent Iran’s progress by carrying out such terrorist acts,” IRNA quoted First Vice President Mohammad Reza Rahimi saying.
Despite the controversy over the killing, Ahmadinejad is completing his five-day trip to Venezuela, Nicaragua, Cuba and Ecuador.
Some foreign policy experts believe the trip is part of an Iranian effort to build a network of operatives in Latin America to strike back at U.S. and Israeli targets in the region should there be a military attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities.
Ahmadinejad will visit Ecuador next.
