A flight carrying Iran's humanitarian aid for the COVID-19 epidemic to Venezuela landed at Caracas airport on Sunday.

Iran Press/America: Iran has already sent five tankers loaded with fuel to Venezuela despite US sanctions. This was considered by experts as a great success for Iran.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said in a televised address on Sunday that Iran, Russia, China, and Cuba's aid to Venezuela, including humanitarian aid, showed that the countries were real friends of Venezuela.

He said the United States had offered $ 20 million in aid to Venezuela, "but not a single dollar came through".

Despite US officials threatening to block Iranian oil tankers from entering Venezuela, five Iranian oil tankers have docked in Venezuelan ports in the past month and delivered their fuel to the crisis-hit country.

Five ships, Fortune, Forest, Faxon, Petunia, and the Clavel, carried fuel from Iran to Venezuela.

On May 24, Venezuela's envoy to the UN Samuel Moncada welcomed the arrival of the first of five Iranian tankers in the Latin American state as a major step in its fight against foreign attacks on its sovereignty.
