Resumen

CARO, ISAAC  y  RODRIGUEZ, ISABEL. THE PRESENCE OF IRAN IN LATIN AMERICA THROUGH ITS INFLUENCE ON THE ALBA COUNTRIES. Atenea (Concepc.) [online]. 2009, n.500, pp.21-39. ISSN 0718-0462.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-04622009000200003.

In this paper, we examine the presence of Iran in Latin America through its connections with three countries that are members of the "Alternativa Bolivariana para América Latina y el Caribe" (ALBA) -Venezuela, Nicaragua, Bolivia- and one that is an observer of this association -Ecuador-. We argue that these relations cover not only the economic level, but incorporate also the political, cultural and military levels. This is a strategic relationship in which both sides seek political advantages. On one hand, Iran seeks to overcome its international isolation and present itself as a platform of opposition to the United States; on the other hand, framing the latter in the context of South- South relations.

Palabras clave : Iran; Islam; Latin America; religion.
