Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his Bolivian counterpart on Tuesday called for close relations of Iran and Bolivia, to resist imperialist hegemony.

The two presidents called for strengthening of relations between the independent and freedom-seeking nations to resist imperialist hegemony, the official IRNA news agency reported.

There is no doubt that strong relations between independent states will be to the benefit of global peace and security which will lead to the demise of capitalism, said Ahmadinejad.

Bolivian President Juan Evo Morales, for his part, expressed satisfaction over Iran's industrial progress and said the achievements of independent and revolutionary nations would serve the welfare and development of other nations, according to IRNA.

The Islamic Republic and Bolivia should cooperate in thwarting plots hatched by the enemies and the close cooperation of the independent states would help reduce their vulnerability in dealing with imperialism, he was quoted as saying.

The Bolivian president is in Iran for a three-day visit with the goal of strengthening bilateral ties and is seeking more Iranian investment in the South American country.
