Ahmadinejad in Brazil to Erase Images of Iran’s Suspected Election Fraud

Ahmadinejad The president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, arrives this weekend in Brazilian capital BrasÀ­lia accompanied by a group of 300 people, most of them business men. But more than just doing business, the Iranian leader would love to be able to create a new image for himself.

The visit is going to last a little more than 24 hours, but Ahmadinejad wants to return to Teheran after signing 23 bilateral agreements dealing with trade – from energy and petrochemicals to food and medicinal drugs – and with the hope that the negative perception that he brings to the international scenario can be altered.

For the Iranian authorities, Ahmadinejad's visit to Brazil represents the possibility of reducing the opposition to the president's figure.

The visit has been planned for two years. The original intention was to have it in May, but Ahmadinejad claimed that he needed to deal with electoral problems at home. There are suspicions, however, that the postponement was decided after several criticisms were raised in Brazil against the presence of the Iranian leader.

On Monday, November 23, Brazilian president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva's agenda as well as that of his economic area ministers will be devoted to Ahmadinejad and his entourage. Brazilian entrepreneurs led by the Fiesp (São Paulo State Industry Federation) will go to Brasí­lia for meetings with the Iranians.

Reelected in June with about 63% of the votes against 34% of the opposition main candidate, Mir Hossein Mousavi, Ahmadinejad in this trip hopes to show that he overcame the domestic resistance to his leadership and that now he is looking for international agreements that will improve life quality in Iran, since the country is under an embargo imposed by the Americans.

Upon landing in Brasí­lia in two planes, Ahmadinejad also wants to leave behind the images shown all over the word of mass protests in Iran against what marchers believe were fraudulent elections. The protests were met with violence by the police and the Basij militia linked to the Revolutionary Guard.

    VinnyCaroca, thanks for the pics. Can you provide a believable explanation as to why Neda was being stalked by a camera before she was murdered mercilessly. Here is the video clip from CNN.

    As for election fraud, not according to WorldPublicOpinion . org :
    “Most Iranians (81 percent) say they consider Ahmadinejad to be Iran’s legitimate president, and 62 percent say they have a lot of confidence in the declared election results”

    vinny, asp
    you folks just cant handle the ‘unpropaganda’.

    fyi, there have been quite a few hangings of criminals in the us this year.
    it’s not just an islamic fundamentalist thing, but also a christian fundamentalist thing!

    as for vinny, he’s probably not aware (or has selective memory loss) that net-&-yahoo did not
    win the majority of the ‘popular’ vote in israel’s last election, tha went to ms. livni. the fact
    that she is not the current leader speaks volumes for israel’s own warped, corrupt political
    process. & yes btw, that thug net-&-yahoo is being investigated for corruption.

    finally, asp, are you an illegal alien here in brasil? who in their right mind gave you a visa
    given your criminal background.

    If she was stalked…why did CNN have to highlight her movements while she was in constant motion in a 23 second fellow demonstrator’s cellphone video piece that was panning a peaceful demonstration? You really call that stalking?
    The only stalking that was done was by the murderous Iranian police and cowardly Basij gang of thugs. It’s unfortunate that you seem to defend them.
    How about the police that were beating the protesters? Were cameras “stalking” them also?

    That’s right punk…and it’s obvious where it’s coming from. Keep living that lie.
