An Iranian ship carrying foodstuff has entered Venezuelan waters and is approaching the port of La Guaira.

Iran Press/America: Hojjatullah Soltani, the ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran to Venezuela, wrote on his Twitter page that the Iranian ship carrying foodstuff and equipment needed for countering COVID-19 is in the waters of Venezuela.

The cargo ship with the flag of the Islamic Republic of Iran left Bandar Abbas (southern Iran) for Venezuela on May 15.

“The Golsan will arrive carrying food to open the first Iranian supermarket in Venezuela,” the Iranian Embassy wrote on Saturday via its Twitter account.

Earlier, Iran sent five ships carrying 1.5 million barrels of gasoline to Venezuela, and the tankers delivered their cargo to Venezuela in recent weeks.

Following the transfer of Iranian fuel shipments to Venezuela, the Caracas government has been able to start distributing fuel throughout the country under a new system.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro praised the Iranian government for sending oil tankers saying he is scheduled to travel to Iran soon and will take part in a joint commission with officials from the two countries to sign agreements on energy, agriculture, finance, technology, science and health.

In recent months, the United States has sought to overthrow the legitimate government of Venezuela, which has an anti-American approach, by threatening, imposing sanctions, putting pressure on Venezuela's economy. An approach that has never been successful.
