Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro visited Kuwait on Monday and held talks with the crown prince of the small, oil-rich country, state media reported.
“We are on this necessary tour to reactivate the bonds of work, cooperation, community, solidarity, brotherhood,” Maduro said from Kuwait in a televised conversation with his collaborators in Caracas.
Maduro spoke with Sheikh Meshal Al Ahmed Al Jaber at Kuwait International Airport alongside Maduro’s delegation, including his wife, Cilia Flores, state news agency KUNA reported, without detailing their discussions. .
Venezuelan state broadcaster VTV noted that both Kuwait and Venezuela were among the original members of the OPEC oil cartel. Maduro’s Twitter account said the president wanted to develop those ties. Maduro’s visit comes after he traveled to Tehran, Iran, for meetings over the weekend, including with Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
Maduro is touring Eurasia after President Joe Biden decided not to invite him to the Summit of the Americas, which started on Thursday. His first stops included Algeria and Turkey.
