MOSCOW, October 8 (Itar-Tass) — The re-election of Hugo Chavez as Venezuela’s president will make relations between the two countries predictable and stable, first deputy head of the State Duma Foreign Relations Committee Vyacheslav Nikonov said on Monday.
“Such electoral outcome will give grounds for not worrying of political, military, technical and economic cooperation,” Nikonon told Itar-Tass.
“The victory of the incumbent president is useful for the presence of Russian major companies in Venezuela. It is clear that Gazprom will not have questions, which could be raised whether the opponent of Hugo Chavez came to power,” the Duma Foreign Relations Committee first deputy head explained.
In his words, Moscow has always riveted much attention to cooperation with Venezuela in all fields. Venezuela is the major player on the world market.”
Chavez has been re-elected for Venezuela’s presidency. The six-year term will start in January 2013.
