President Nicolas Maduro has announced upcoming travel Iran “to accelerate the processes of cooperation at all levels and to sign agreements.” In an interview for Al Mayadeen, the Venezuelan president said that the Joint Commission between Iran and Venezuela is working on new plans for relations and cooperation.
“Very soon I am going to travel to Tehran to attend this invitation to visit which President Raisi has extended to me, to meet personally, to develop conversations, to sign new agreements, new documents, to accelerate the processes of cooperation at all levels, at all levels of cooperation between two independent, sovereign countries, two fighting countries like Iran and Venezuela” President Maduro told Al Mayadeen’s Ghassan bin Jiddo.
He said that relations with the Islamic Republic have always been very good, “Whether with former President Ahmadinejad, former President Hassan Rouhani, or now with President Ebrahim Raisi.” He also voiced admiration for Iranian Leader Ayatollah Khamenei.

Likewise, strategic cooperation covers the productive economy and oil sector.
Meanwhile, initiatives aimed at the reactivation of cooperation mechanisms of the South American-Arab Countries Forum (ASPA) will be proposed by Venezuela to materialize projects in financial and commercial areas, announced the President.
