Iran, Venezuela to draw 20-year cooperation document soon: Amir-Abdollahian

Tehran (ISNA) – Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abollahian announced that Iran and Venezuela have agreed to draw a roadmap for 20 years of cooperation between the two countries.

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and his visiting Venezuelan counterpart Felix Plasencia held a meeting at the Iranian Foreign Ministry compound in Tehran on Monday, followed by a joint press conference.

“Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro will visit Tehran in the coming months, during which a 20-year cooperation document will be signed,” Amir-Abdollahian said during the joint press conference.

Stressing that the relations between Tehran and Caracas are on the growth path, Amir-Abdollahian said, “Iran and Venezuela can expand their cooperation in technical, economic, trade, scientific, technological, mining and energy fields and there is great potential in this regard between the two countries”.

“Some great agreements have been signed between Iran and Venezuela in recent years and most of them are being implemented. Iran supports Venezuela’s people, president and all egitimate institutions and calls US’ policies against Caracas unconstructive,” he added.

Elsewhere, Amir-Abdollahian said “We consider the recent arrest of a Venezuelan diplomat in the Cape Verde and his extradition to the United States as an act of kidnapping and improper and unconstructive action committed by the United States and an aggression on Venezuelan sovereignty”.
