Referring to the strengthening of strategic relations with Iran in the fields of industry and energy, the President of Venezuela stressed that Iran's experience will help us to strengthen our managerial, strategic capacities, and development plans and projects.

Iran PressAmerica: Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, in a televised interview on Sunday, stressed the need to strengthen strategic relations with Iran in the field of energy and oil industry, adding: "Iran has implemented all its plans for 40 years and it has been able to create a powerful industry in the field of energy. The Iranian people have always supported the progress and development of the Bolivarian country."

"Iran's experience will help us to strengthen all managerial, strategic capacities, and development plans and projects," he added.

"After signing of several agreements on the development of productive and social fields, the alliance between the two countries has been improved,” the Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro said.

Maduro also referred to his Saturday's remarks on the assessment of arms negotiations with Iran, after claims of Colombian President Ivan Duque that in order to strengthen Bolivarian comprehensive defense against the continuing threats of the United States and neighboring Colombia, he has issued instructions to Vladimir Padrino Lopez, the country's defense minister, to assess all of Iran's military technology capabilities.

He went on to say that Ivan Duque sought to divert public attention from the Colombian health catastrophe with these remarks, adding: "Ivan Duque, with more than 35 years of massacre, can do whatever you think. But I believe in Venezuela's defense capabilities."      104/207
