Biden: Iran will not threaten U.S. security through Latin America

• By the CNN Wire Staff
 Iran will not be able to use alliances with Latin America to wield significant influence on security in the West, U.S. Vice President Joe Biden said Wednesday.

"We have the full capacity to make sure that does not happen," Biden told CNN en Español.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad visited four Latin American countries in a five-day tour earlier this year, searching for support there amid growing global sanctions targeting his nation's nuclear program.
