VENEZUELA - IRAN

Venezuela’s political blunder on Ahmadinejad’s arrival

Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad arrived in Venezuela on November 24. A slight error for his arrival: the anthem played as he stepped off the plane was that of Iran... before the Islamic Revolution.

These images were aired by the Iranian state channel IRIB. Omid Habibinia, one of our Observers for Iran who currently lives in Sweden, alerted us to the video.

The music being played is called 'Sorood Shahanshahi' (the royal hymn). It was the official anthem of the Shah regime, binned after the 1979 Revolution. The video has caused quite a scandal on the Iranian web. The IRIB played the clip quite a few times, which is completely ridiculous."
