Iranian Foreign Minister lands in Venezuela
The Iranian Foreign Minister has arrived in Venezuela to take part in a meeting of the Non-Aligned Movement.
Mohammad Javad Zarif is also scheduled to hold bilateral meetings with Venezuelan government leaders before travelling on to Nicaragua and Bolivia.
"The resistance of the people of Venezuela against the United States is very important for all the countries of the world and the people of Venezuela," Zarif told reporters after landing in Caracas.
"Without the interference of the US, the people of Venezuela know how to live together and how to get along with each other. Wherever the US steps in, it brings instability and insecurity," Iranian Foreign Minister added.
He continued, "Today in the Middle East and the regions of South America and Latin America, US is creating instability and insecurity."
"We do not know anywhere in the world that the presence of the US has brought stability or security. Wherever they go they cause instability, pressure on people and their presence is accompanied by an increase in radicalism and terrorism," Zarif noted.
