Ahmadinejad to visit Cuba on 9/11 anniversary

Fidel Castro has invited Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to Cuba on the fifth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States.

Citing the Cuban Communist Party daily Granma, Agence France-Presse reports from Havana that Ahmadinejad accepted Castro's invitation to attend the Non-Aligned summit in Havana from September 11-16, 2006.

Ahmadinejad expressed gratitude for Cuban support for Iran's nuclear program. Cuba, Venezuela and Syria voted against an International Atomic Energy Agency resolution to refer Iran to the UN Security Council due to worries about its nuclear weapons program.

Granma reports that Iranian Parliament leader Ghulam Ali Haddad Adel will also visit Cuba.
