Polarizing Turkish leader affirms support of Maduro.

World Events

The president of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, said during his official visit to Venezuela that his country will ‘cover most of the needs’ of the South American nation, which is in a serious economic and social crisis.

‘We are going to cover most of Venezuela’s needs, we have that strength, we have that opportunity. I would like to highlight this fact, “Erdogan said at a meeting with Turkish businessmen in which his Venezuelan counterpart, Nicolás Maduro, was also present.

The Turkish president arrived in Caracas on Sunday night. This is the first official visit to Venezuela and whose goal is to review and sign cooperation agreements between the two countries, according to the Efe news agency.

At the meeting, in which 50 Turkish businessmen and 150 Venezuelans participated, the president of Turkey indicated that his country is willing to collaborate in different areas of the economy, but that it is necessary to ‘improve the business environment for entrepreneurs’.

‘We want to strengthen the process we have started in Istanbul, in investments, in energy, in mining, in tourism, in agriculture, in transport, in health, in education, in security; we have a lot of potential to collaborate in all these business fields, “he said.

The Ministry of Petroleum said that its representative, Manuel Quevedo, has also held meetings with the Turkish Minister of Energy and Natural Resources, Fatih Dönmez.

“Strengthening the strategic and energy and trade cooperation ties between Turkey and Venezuela,” the Ministry said.

Erdogan also took the opportunity to condemn the failed attack suffered last August by President Maduro during an act with the military. He said the incident was “a threat to Venezuela’s desire for independence.”

The Government of Venezuela considers Turkey an allied country to overcome the economic “blockade” that the United States (USA) assures it.

Before this visit, the foreign ministers of both nations, the Turkish Mevlüt Çavusoglu and the Venezuelan Jorge Arreaza, signed, last September in Caracas, agreements to strengthen diplomatic relations.

During his visit to the Caribbean country, Çavusoglu stressed that his country was doing ‘everything necessary to support Venezuela’ in the difficult situation it is facing and expressed its rejection of the measures of ‘isolation’ and the sanctions imposed by the US.

During his visit to Caracas, Erdogan also presented a wreath before the remains of Simón Bolívar.
