With a high-level Venezuelan delegation led by Vice President Jorge Rodriguez currently visiting Russia, the two leaders discussed the implementation of agreements reached during Mr Chavez’ working visit to Russia in June 2007.
Both sides said they were happy to see that consistent work is underway to carry out plans that make a priority of developing trade and economic cooperation.
The two leaders also noted the increasingly important role played by the two countries’ business communities. This activity is to get a further boost from the Russia-Venezuela Business Council, which held its first meeting earlier in the day in Moscow.
The conversation took place at Venezuela’s initiative.
