Cooperative relations between the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and the Islamic Republic of Iran have strengthened considerably in the last 18 years but more importantly in the last 3 years when both countries have faced illegal US sanctions making them build a strong friendship.
Both countries have signed different agreements on energy, science, economic and industrial matters, and belong to the Movement of Non-Aligned Countries (NAM), the Forum of Gas Exporting Countries and the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC).
