Venezuela’s and Iran’s foreign ministers, Félix Plasencia and Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, held a fraternal meeting in New York, where they stressed their countries’ commitment to continuing their mutual political support at international forums against meddling and the imposition of unilateral coercive measures.
The head of the Venezuelan diplomacy explained on his Twitter account, @PlasenciaFelix, that they agreed on the defense of international law and the principles enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations.
At the meeting, the foreign ministers exchanged greetings sent by their leaders. Venezuela reaffirmed President Nicolás Maduro’s congratulations to the recently elected President of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Ebrahim Raisi.
“The Iranian foreign minister insisted on inviting us to a visit to Tehran to review important issues in the agenda of our bilateral strategic relations,” wrote Plasencia.
The two diplomats are in New York on the occasion of the 76th Session of the UN General Assembly.
Caracas and Tehran have improved their cooperation relations to a strategic alliance, developing projects in different areas for the benefit of their countries, and they have also strengthened their solidarity-based ties and shared a geopolitical vision of a multipolar, free world respecting the self-determination of the peoples.
