Venezuelan president congratulates Raisi on winning Iran presidential election

Tehran, IRNA – Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, in a phone conversation on Thursday, congratulated Ebrahim Raisi on winning a July 18 Iranian presidential election.

Maduro said that in this election, the Iranian people demonstrated the glory of democracy.  

Noting that Venezuela is determined to broaden relations with Iran in all areas, Maduro called on Iranian president-elect to regard Venezuela as Iran’s friend and brother in the fight for building a fairer and more democratic world.  

The Iranian president-elect said for his part that the smart resistance of Iran and Venezuela to the US arbitrary sanctions proved the possibility of taking the sustainable and long-term chances of defusing the sanctions.

Raisi said that the economic diplomacy of his government will lose no chance to promote relations with other countries.

Iran’s economic capabilities and Venezuela’s various capacities have provided a chance for a boost in bilateral relations between the two countries, Raisi said.
