Ahmadinejad left Tehran for Bolivia Monday night where he will meet his counterpart Eva Morales to discuss bilateral ties and mutual cooperation between the two nations.

Ahmadinejad will then leave for Brazil where he is supposed to attend the 'Rio+20' summit-- a UN conference on sustainable development.

Ahmadinejad said "Rio+20" summit with the subject of environment is a meeting which coordinates the movement of nations with regard to environmental issues as well as construction and progress.

He added all efforts will be made so that no decision would go against the nations or solely in the interests of capitalism.

Delegates from around the world will descend on Rio de Janeiro this week for a major United Nations meeting on the environment. Dubbed "Rio+20," the event, will commemorate the 20th anniversary of the first "Earth Summit."

Later in the week, the Iranian president will visit Caracas to meet his Venezuelan counterpart Hugo Chavez and discuss mutual ties and cooperation.

Ahmadinejad said Tehran and Caracas enjoy friendly relations and cooperation in various fields including energy, industry, money exchanges and construction.
