Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro arrived Friday in Tehran on a two-day state visit, the country’s state-run media reported.
A high-ranking political and economic delegation from Venezuela, which like Iran is under heavy US sanctions, is accompanying Maduro on the visit, following an invitation from Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi.
Maduro is on a Eurasian tour. His stops earlier this week included Algeria and Turkey.
Venezuela, along with Cuba and Nicaragua, was not invited by the Biden administration to the Summit of the Americas.
Venezuela has received Iranian tankers at its ports and in the past, Iran also exported cars to Venezuela.
