The Russian Foreign Minister arrives in Venezuela on his tour of Latin America

The Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, arrived in Venezuela this Monday, as part of his tour of Latin America, where he will meet with the Venezuelan president, Nicolás Maduro, to discuss “key issues” of bilateral cooperation.

“Venezuela is a strategic partner and ally of Russia. Bilateral relations based on strong ties of friendship and solidarity are on the rise and we are actively developing them in all key areas,” said the Russian diplomatic portfolio through its Telegram channel. .

Lavrov, who will also hold a meeting with his Venezuelan counterpart, Yvan Gil, has highlighted that “the political dialogue between Russia and Venezuela is characterized by high intensity”, since last year Maduro and the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, held two phone calls, while senior officials have made trips to both countries.

“On multilateral platforms, Russia and Venezuela constantly advocate for the formation of a more equitable multipolar world order, maintaining the leading role of the UN, the supremacy of International Law and defending the principles of respect for sovereignty, territorial integrity and equality of States,” he indicated.

Likewise, he added that Moscow and Caracas “are unanimous in the inadmissibility of interference in internal affairs and the use of unilateral coercive measures as an instrument of pressure.” In this sense, he has indicated that he will continue “to provide comprehensive support to the Government and people of Venezuela in the protection of national sovereignty and the right to independently choose the path of development.”

Before his trip to Caracas, Lavrov has been in Cuba, where he has met with the Cuban president, Miguel Díaz-Canel. In statements to the press, the Russian Foreign Minister has condemned the United States blockade of the island and has assured that they will continue to support Cuba.
