“I greet President Seyed Ebrahim Raisi and the Iranian people who remain standing, resisting imperial threats. I ratify our commitment to strengthening the ties of brotherhood,” the Venezuelan president emphasized on his Twitter account.
In a recent interview granted to the Arab television channel Al Mayadeen, Maduro noted that Venezuela and Iran are working on new relations and cooperation plans, which will result in favorable agreements for both nations.
Maduro noted that he will soon travel to Tehran to meet his counterpart Ebrahim Raisi “to speed up cooperation at all levels between two independent and sovereign countries,” he asserted. Venezuela and Iran are allies in the fields of science, technology and innovation, which involve technology transfer in agriculture, food, industry, mining and construction.
Likewise, strategic cooperation mainly covers the productive economy sector and oil.
Earlier, Venezuelan Foreign Minister Felix Plasencia stressed that Iran is a worthy example of strength and struggle for sovereignty and independence.
