SUBJECT: EVO ANNOUNCES SOY AGREEMENT WITH IRAN

The press reported on April 20 that Bolivia will sign a trade
agreement with Iran to export organic soy under the framework
of the People's Cooperation Agreement (TCP) and the
Bolivarian Alternative for America (ALBA) with Venezuela.
President Morales reportedly announced to a group of soy
farmers in Santa Cruz that the President of Iran told him in
a meeting that Iran would import however much organic soy
Bolivia could produce. Morales added that in the next few
days, representatives of the Government of Iran would visit
Bolivia to finalize the terms of the soy trade agreement.
Morales reportedly argued, "If the U.S. has agreements with
Iran, why shouldn't we?"

Once upon a time, the Soviet Union was the nightmare threat for the entire Cold War era – and since then the US has cast the Taliban, al Qaeda, and Islamic State in the same demonic role. Iran is now the latest example…More
