Venezuela’s Maduro Arrives in Minsk for Bilateral Talks on Trade, Commerce

MINSK – Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro arrived on Thursday to the capital of Belarus to hold bilateral talks with Belarusian President Alexandr Lukashenko and other high-ranking members of his cabinet.

Maduro flew into Minsk from Moscow and would meet Lukashenko and other members of his cabinet for high-level bilateral trade and commerce talks within the context of a Venezuelan diplomatic tour that included Russia and would continue to Turkey.

Maduro was met at Minsk airport by Vice President Vladimir Semashko, according to local news agency Belta.

“After bidding farewell to Moscow, we continue on to Belarus with our lightning Bolivarian Diplomatic peace tour,” the Venezuelan president tweeted.

Both presidents would meet at Minsk’s Palace of Independence and later head a joint wider format meeting with their respective delegations to discuss future joint economic and trade projects.

After Minsk, the Venezuelan leader will travel to Turkey to jointly preside an Intergovernmental Joint Committee between the Venezuelan and Turkish governments to reinforce their cooperation in the fields of finance, energy, industrial farming, and defense.

In Moscow, Maduro attended the Russian Energy Week forum and held bilateral talks at the Kremlin with Russia’s President Vladimir Putin.

He thanked Russia’s support for Venezuela in these “difficult moments” which, according to Maduro, are “being overcome” as talks with the Venezuelan opposition forces get underway.

Speaking in front of a group of oil-producing nations’ leaders, Maduro stressed the importance of “seeking a new formula” based on the agreement reached in November 2016 by members and non-members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) aimed at lowering the global oil production rate in order to stabilize oil prices.
