Since October 1, 1959, Venezuela and India began their bilateral relations, which have been strengthened and consolidated throughout the Bolivarian Revolution, the Executive Vice President reported in a press release.
With Commander Hugo Chávez’s visit to India in March 2005, a South-South rapprochement between both peoples and governments was agreed with his counterpart APJ Abdul Kalam.
In recent years, Venezuela and India have strengthened their ties of cooperation, friendship and brotherhood, both bilaterally and in international relations, as both countries are members of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM).
Ambassador Singh presented to the president of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, his credentials as the new diplomatic representative in Venezuela, on August 11 of 2020.
