Venezuela and Cuba
The relations between Cuba and Venezuela date from 1962, but with the arrival of Revolutionary leader Hugo Chávez in 1999 the bilateral relationship had improved significantly, thus forming an important alliance with Cuban President Fidel Castro and a commercial and brotherhood relationship with Cuba.
Since then, the Cuba-Venezuela Intergovernmental Commission has signed a total of 1,400 agreements on health, sports, education, culture, energy, telecommunications, economics and agriculture.
