Venezuela to escort Iranian ships laden with humanitarian aid

Caracas, May 21 (Prensa Latina) The National Bolivarian Armed Force (FANB) will escort in its jurisdictional waters and air space all Iranian ships laden with humanitarian aid for Venezuela, Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino announced.

‘When those ships enter our exclusive economic zone, they will be escorted by FANB vessels and planes to welcome them and thank the Iranian people for their solidarity and cooperation, amid the difficulties caused by Covid-19,’ Padrino told Venezolana de Television.

In that regard, he noted that Venezuela and Iran are sovereign and independent nations, allies in peace and international diplomacy, and ratified that the humanitarian aid will be received, as happens with Russia, China and other countries.

Padrino pointed out that the nations have the right to trade freely among them guaranteed, always under the principles of respect and mutual recognition.
