The press office of the Kremlin reported on Sunday, December 30, that the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, sent a letter to his Venezuelan counterpart, Nicolás Maduro, highlighting the convergence between both administrations with the plans they develop.
“The recent talks in Moscow confirmed the convergence of the positions of both countries on key issues on the global agenda and allowed to outline the steps to expand mutually beneficial cooperation,” the Russian Government reported.
Putin expressed confidence that the agreements reached will further strengthen the relations between Russia and Venezuela.
Also, the letter served as a framework to wish the Venezuelan head of state a merry Christmas and the start of the new year and thus safeguard the good relations between the two countries.
On the other hand, the Russian president took advantage of the occasion of the holiday season to send messages with good wishes to other leaders of America, such as the president of Argentina, Mauricio Macri; the first president of Cuba, Miguel Díaz-Canel; and the Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau.
“Vladimir Putin has expressed confidence that the implementation of existing agreements would promote further development of the entire complex of bilateral relations in the spirit of a comprehensive strategic partnership and in the interest of strengthening international security and stability,” reads the letter sent to Macri.
