Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and his Iranian counterpart Mahmoud Ahmadinejad have denounced the West's "imperialist aggression" in Libya and Syria.

During a telephone call late on Monday, the two "discussed the situation created by the imperialist aggression against Libya and Syria, and agreed to follow up on this issue and increase their efforts to achieve peace," the Venezuelan foreign ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.
