Venezuela and Iran strengthen bilateral relations

In a recent meeting at Miraflores Palace, the president of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, met with the secretary general of the Ahl-ul-Bayt World Assembly, Ayatollah Reza Ramezani. Both leaders reaffirmed their commitment to dialogue as an essential tool for peacebuilding and strategic innovation with new technologies, which marks another milestone in the two decades of bilateral relationship between Venezuela and Iran.

During the meeting, the Iranian authorities, currently visiting Caracas, expressed their interest in promoting an intercultural and religious dialogue based on Islam, with the aim of promoting innovation and contributing to the construction of a more equitable and multipolar world, as part of the search for a balance that respects diversity and promotes global peace.

The visit also symbolizes the political will of the president of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro Moros, and of the Iranian president, Ebrahim Raisi, who in the aforementioned meeting recalled the role of the leader of the Bolivarian Revolution, Hugo Chávez, in the beginning of these strategic relationships that have been maintained to date with the management of the national leader.

Likewise, this meeting served as a space to highlight and recognize Iran as a power in the energy, scientific and technological fields, as well as the solid relations it maintains with Venezuela, especially in environmental, industrial and technological areas. It is important to remember that, in 2023, both countries signed 18 agreements, which reinforces collaboration in these vital sectors for mutual development and international cooperation.
