Venezuela’s Maduro Begins China Visit with Trip to Mao Zedong’s Mausoleum

BEIJING – Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro began on Friday his official visit to China with a trip to the tomb of Mao Zedong, founder of the Communist regime in the country, near the Tiananmen square in Beijing.

Maduro, accompanied by his wife Cilia Flores, paid his respects to the statue of Mao at the entrance to the mausoleum, where Mao’s embalmed body is preserved, and signed the visitor’s book, according to handout images released by the Venezuelan president’s office.

“We have come to pay homage to the Great Helmsman Mao Zedong (...) who, with his example, his ideas and his revolutionary struggle, influenced the 20th century world and the future of China,” Maduro said in a televised address after visiting the mausoleum.

“I feel much moved to remember one of the main founders of what has already become a multipolar 21st century,” he added.

The Venezuelan president urged for a multipolar world, but rejected hegemony as manipulation.

He also stressed that his current visit was aimed at boosting state ties between the two countries.
