“The world nations have been awakened and the bases of the system of hegemony are getting destroyed, and this is a trend that could be observed in the Middle-East region very clearly,” he continued.
Ahmadinejad felicitated Correa, and mentioned that his election as the president of Ecuador is an indication of the said developments in Latin America.
He further stated that Iran attaches much significance to its relations with Latino states, and stressed that the Iranian nation always supports and stands on the side of the independent and progressive nations, including Ecuador.
