Maduro: Venezuela will continue friendship with Russia

21
Acting President of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, promised that his country would maintain allied relations with Russia.


“Venezuela will remain a friendly, allied, loyal and fraternal country for Russia, we will continue to develop this excellent working friendship of our peoples, friendship with President Vladimir Putin,” Maduro cites local television at the opening of the ninth meeting of the high-level intergovernmental commission in the state Tachira, reports RIANews».

The meeting will discuss the full range of trade and investment cooperation, specific projects and proposals to increase its volume. Summarizing the results of 2012, the trade turnover of the two countries amounted to two billion dollars, which seems insufficient to both sides. Maduro said that the parties had outlined work plans for the coming years, cooperation in the field of oil and gas, plans to supply Venezuelan goods, including flowers, to Russia . He confirmed that 2-3 July will participate in the summit of the participants of the Forum of Gas Exporting Countries in Moscow.
Immediately after attending a meeting of the commission, Maduro went to the state administrative center of Tachira to rally his supporters as part of the election campaign.

As the newspaper VIEW reported, the presidential elections in Venezuela are scheduled for April 14. Acting head of state Nicolas Maduro announced his participation in the elections. He has already stated that his election is not attracted by personal ambitions, but by the order of the late Hugo Chávez.

His main opponent - single opposition candidate Enrique Capriles - also announced his intention to run for office.

Hugo Chavez passed away after a long March 5 illness.

        Gentlemen, we wish Mr. Maduro victory in the election. It is advisable by a wide margin that the local fifth column about fraud would not vote. Let's hope that relations between us and Maduro will not deteriorate, we hope that he is a worthy student of Hugo Chavez.

          Chavez is a rare person, like Che Guevara. The second one is hard to find in the same country at the same time.

            But is it really necessary "such"? Perhaps his role has been fulfilled, Chavez pulled the country out of the abyss of American influence, the people saw the prospects for a different life ... all this is akin to a revolution. Now is the time for a systematic, uncompromising movement along this path, the struggle for the life of the country every day. We need a leader from Stalin's cohort ... The question is - is this Comrade Maduro? Let's wish him wisdom, steadfastness and determination after winning the election. And it won't rust behind Russia.

    So far, this is pre-election rhetoric. All the most "important and interesting" will begin after the presidential elections in Venezuela.

      What will start then? Will he be friends with the USA? I doubt it very much.

        The West has no friends by definition. Those countries that are supposedly with the West, they fall into the used position because of the betrayal of their elites.

      Absolutely fair! How can he promise something before the election!
      The vector of their policy will become clear only after the election, but we hope that the case of Hugo Chavez will fall into reliable hands and the nature of relations with Russia will not change.

    Bolivar can’t stand two. I’m I. I can’t do this. Russia needs Venezuela, at least to keep oil prices ..... If they take the Americans, it will be more difficult for our state ... ..... hi
