On Monday, February 6, after the devastation and material damage in Syria caused by a strong earthquake, Venezuelan Minister for Foreign Relations Yván Gil met with the Syrian Ambassador in Caracas, Kenan Zaher Al Deen, to coordinate support that the Venezuelan government will provide Syria. This is also within the context of the illegal US and European sanctions that the Syrian people still face amid the foreign occupation of their country.
President Nicolás Maduro instructed to “provide all the support available to help this sister nation. Let the Syrian people count on our total solidarity!” Yván Gil wrote on social media.
