Bolivia and Iran to Initiate Diplomatic Relations (Updated)

Apropos the post below, it appears that Ahmedinejad is now going to go to Bolivia on Thursday. La Razon reports that he will be bearing gifts too: the initiation of diplomatic relations with La Paz and the strengthening of commercial ties. Again, I just don't see what's in this for Bolivia.

Update: Ahmadinejad arrived in Bolivia this afternoon and already the newspapers are fretting over how this will affect US-Bolivian relations. In this post, Bolivian blogger Mario Duran provides a glimpse into the status of Bolivian civil liberties in Evo's democracy. Why is it relevant? Because it happend while he waited for Ahmadinejad's motorcade to pass.
