Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad congratulated Dilma Rousseff for her victory in Brazil 's presidential election, the local satellite Press TV reported on Monday.

"I am confident that Brazil will go ahead with its progress and development with full speed during your presidential term," Ahmadinejad said in his message to his new Brazilian counterpart, said the report.

"The Islamic Republic believes that the establishment of regional and international justice, security and stability will be possible through observing rights of nations and respecting international regulations while refraining from using force and double standards in resolving crises," the message was quoted as saying.

Friendly cooperation between Iran and Brazil has brought great achievements in mutual, regional and international fields during the office of outgoing Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, Ahmadinejad said, expressing hope that friendly relations between Iran and Brazil would be further developed under Rousseff.

The Iranian senior lawmaker, Alaeddin Boroujerdi, said Monday that the result of the recent presidential elections in Brazil would strengthen the anti-U.S. front.

Rousseff, 62, candidate for the ruling Workers' Party Dilma Rousseff was declared president-elect Sunday by the Superior Electoral Tribunal (SET). She was elected Brazil's 40th president after Sunday's votes.
