Kremlin Vows That Russia Will Continue Its Support for Venezuela (VIDEO)



MOSCOW – The Russian government said on Friday that it would continue to support Venezuela after the recent working visit of the South American country’s President Nicolas Maduro to Moscow.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov expressed Russia’s intention to carry on with its close diplomatic and economic relations with the Venezuelan government during his weekly press briefing, which followed up on Thursday’s meeting between Maduro and Vladimir Putin that marked the end of the former’s three-day trip to Russia.

“Without a doubt, Russia’s support for Venezuela will continue to this or that extent,” Peskov said.

The presidential spokesperson added that the talks between Maduro and Putin had broached a diverse array of subjects related to their bilateral interaction.

When asked whether the Kremlin’s support for Venezuela included financial aid, Peskov said: “I don’t have anything to add to what I’ve already said.”

On Thursday, Maduro had announced the signing of several contracts in Russia for an investment worth more than $6 billion in joint projects related to the oil and gold mining sectors.

In addition, the South American leader reported a deal with Russia to guarantee the supply of 600,000 tons of wheat destined to produce “bread for the Venezuelan people,” which he said would cover all of his country’s needs in 2019.

Maduro said that he had also secured military contracts for the maintenance and repair of Venezuela’s weapons systems.
