The Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez met his Syrian counterpart, Bashar al-Assad, yesterday on the Middle East leg of an international tour partly intended to counter what he calls US "imperialism".

Chavez flew in on Wednesday from Tehran, where he and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said they are united in efforts to establish a "new world order" that will eliminate Western dominance over global affairs.

Chavez earlier went to Russia, Belarus and Ukraine. He is due to travel next to Libya and Portugal. The US accuses Syria of secret nuclear activities, which Damascus denies.
