Venezuela and South Africa strengthen cooperation relations at the UN
On his work tour for the United Nations (UN), the foreign minister of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Jorge Arreaza, held a bilateral meeting on Thursday with Jerry Matjila, Ambassador of South Africa to the multilateral organization.
The meeting that took place in New York City was aimed to strengthen South-South cooperation relations, a mechanism based on the development of countries that have common problems through commercial exchange, experiences and inclusion.
Given the political context that Venezuela is currently going through, motivated by the interventionist actions promoted by the government of the United States and the European Union, the South African diplomat highlighted the importance of respecting the Venezuelan Constitution and sovereignty.
Venezuela and South Africa have signed agreements for the development of strategic areas of both nations, thus strengthening friendly relations and cooperation through the implementation of new projects jointly developed by the Caribbean nation, the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America (ALBA) and the country of the African Union.
