On February 11, 1979, Ayatollah Ruhollah Musavi Khomeini returned to Tehran to consolidate the victory of the Islamic Revolution that he led from exile against the reign of Sha Mohammad Reza Pahleví, who fled the country in January of that year, so on April 1, the population voted in favor of the Constitution of the Islamic Republic.
The celebration of the 41st anniversary of this revolution, shows the unity of Tehran against Washington, undertaking an escalation of tensions that ended when President Donald Trump decided to withdraw from the agreement that sought to limit the Iranian nuclear program.
In addition, it reached its most critical point in early 2020 with the assassination of General Qassem Soleimani in an air attack perpetrated by the United States.
Venezuela and Iran will meet on August 9 next 60 years of diplomatic relations. Both countries have strengthened bilateral ties since the arrival of the Eternal Commander, Hugo Chavez, to the Presidency of the Republic as part of his diplomatic policy of opening up to the world and seeking relations for the development of the peoples.
