One of the most audacious foreign policy initiatives taken by Venezuela President Hugo Chavez was to court and establish close economic and political ties with Washington's staunchest opponents, even while being one of its leading oil suppliers. On the occasion of Chavez' death, this statement of condolence by Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad reflects just how close the two men became.

TEHRAN: Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has issued a statement and sent condolences to the Venezuelan people over the death of Hugo Chavez, the president of Venezuela.


The text of the President Ahmadinejad's statement is as follows:


In the Name of God, the Compassionate, and the Merciful.


Inna lillah va Inna Ilayhi Rajeun (2: 156) (Indeed we belong to Allah, and indeed, to Him we will return)


Dear friend, Mr. Nicolas Maduro, honorable vice president of Venezuela,


The spirit of a great man of justice and of those who seek freedom has ascended to the heaven, plunging the world into the grief. Venezuela has lost its bravest and most courageous son, and the world has lost a wise revolutionary leader.


In this moment of grief, I would like to express my condolences to the Venezuelan government and people, his bereaved family, and to your excellency, over the death of Hugo Chavez.


Hugo Chavez is a name known to all nations. His name is reminiscent of pure innocence, kindness, fortitude, love for the people and service to the people. This is particularly true in the case of the poor, and those who have been victims of colonialism and imperialism at the hands of the arrogant powers.


He was a deeply pious man, committed to human and spiritual values. He was a helper to the messengers of God, the global rule of justice, and was a beloved leader of reform.

With all of his courage, Chavez stood against the unquenchable interests of the hegemonic arrogant powers. He stood against their erroneous propaganda, their economic pressure, and even their coup d’états. Yet he was modest enough to find a moment to put his gentle hands on the head of a child and whisper the song of freedom and pride into its ears, igniting a spirit of love for the rest or the child's life.


Chavez was a symbol and was in keeping with the legacy of every brave warrior and revolutionary in the glorious, yet grief-stricken history of Latin America. He embodied the spirit of magnanimity of his nation's people and the people of all nations being oppressed. He was a pioneer of anti-colonialism, the search for justice, and friendship among nations.


He was a spiritual ballast and a brace for all revolutionaries and freedom-seeking people in his region and around the world. Indeed, he was an epiphany and the perfect embodiment of a passionate, idealistic and lovable Venezuela. And for this, the great nation of Venezuela, with all of it sage-like wisdom, elevated him to the presidency, and supported him through thick and thin. For his part, Hugo Chavez exploited every opportunity and marshaled every lever of power to serve his people, lifting up the name of his nation and bringing freedom to others.

In the end, he gave his body and soul to this honor-bound path. Indeed, he is a martyr in service to the Venezuelan people and to preserving human and revolutionary values. Although it appears that a kind and generous friend has left us, I am certain that in the hearts of each and every Latin American and Venezuelan, his heavenly soul and luminous thoughts will be felt every day more brightly than ever, and will light the path toward pride and dignity for all.


As long as justice, love and freedom live, Chavez is alive. As long as piety, luminosity, and humanity live, he is alive. As long as nations live and struggle to consolidate independence, justice and kindness, he is alive. And I have no doubt that along with Christ the Savior, heir to all saintly and perfect men, he will be resurrected, bringing peace, justice and perfection to all.


I again express my condolences over this heavy loss, and pray to God for happiness, health, welfare, and pride to you and to the Venezuelan nation.


Your friend and brother Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, President of the Islamic Republic of Iran
