To continue strengthening brotherly relations and cooperation between sister nations, this Friday the People’s Power Minister for Foreign Relations, Carlos Faría, received in his office the charge d’affaires of the Embassy of the Syrian Arab Republic in Venezuela, Wael Deirky.
During the meeting, held at the headquarters of the Venezuelan Foreign Ministry, in Caracas, both diplomatic authorities reviewed the joint work agenda to execute concrete actions aimed at boosting economic and trade relations between the two nations. The deputy minister for Asia, the Middle East and Oceania, Capaya Rodríguez, accompanied the meeting, according to a press release from the MPPRE.
With more than 75 years of diplomatic relations, Venezuela and Syria have signed different political, economic, commercial, tourist and cultural agreements. In addition, in multilateral instances they have reiterated the commitment to strengthen the Group of Friends in Defense of the United Nations Charter.
Both nations have been victims of multiple attacks by the United States, mainly with financial blockade and unilateral coercive measures; and now they coincide in the fight against the manipulation orchestrated by imperial powers against their governments and peoples.
Since the arrival of the Bolivarian Revolution and Commander Hugo Chávez, relations between Caracas and Damascus have been consolidated and cooperation has gone beyond the barriers imposed by US administrations.
