MOSCOW, April 15 (Itar-Tass) - Venezuelan President-elect Nicolas Maduro, who won a victory at the early presidential elections in the country on April 14, will continue a policy for stronger relations with Russia that late Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez pursued, Venezuelan Charge d’Affaires i.a. in Moscow Hoglis Martinez said here on Monday.
The Venezuelan diplomat noted that 66 Venezuelan citizens from 117 Venezuelans registered at the country’s Consulate in Moscow participated in the voting in Russia. Martinez noted that Maduro’s candidature also gained a majority of votes in Moscow, as about 55% of voters cast their ballots in favour of him in the Russian capital.
“The cooperation between Russia and Venezuela, a strategic alliance of high level between our countries will be strengthened,” the diplomat noted. He noted that Russia and Venezuela are cooperating in different spheres, including agriculture, military, energy and technological spheres, as well as education. The high level of cooperation between the two countries is also proved by the fact that Nicolas Maduro will visit Moscow in early June this year to participate in a forum of the gas exporting countries, Martinez remarked. “Our countries are having a larger number of exchanges and contacts every new day,” the diplomat pointed out.
Speaking on the early presidential elections in Venezuela, he noted that Maduro’s victory is “an important triumph for the Bolivarian Revolution, which we expected.”
