Venezuela Won't Be Bullied Into Halting Gasoline Shipments to Iran

Venezuela will continue to supply Iran with gasoline despite the threat of international sanctions.

David Velasquez, Venezuela's ambassador to Tehran, said on Thursday that his government would not be "bullied" into halting gasoline shipments, Aljazeera.net informs.

The self-declared socialist president has criticized Washington for pressuring Iran to halt its nuclear program amid fears that it is developing nuclear weapons. Chavez defends Iran's nuclear ambitions as peaceful.

Chavez says the U.S. Treasury Department should not be imposing sanctions against the Islamic republic or businesses involved in trade with Tehran, BusinessWeek reports.
