Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro arrived in Saudi Arabia with the purpose of strengthening political, diplomatic and energy alliances.

Maduro reached the King Abdulaziz International Airport in the company of the First Lady and Deputy to the National Assembly Cilia Flores, Foreign Minister Yván Gil and the Minister of Communication and Information Freddy Ñáñez, among other officials.

The President travelled to Saudi Arabia from Türkiye, where he attended the assumption of his counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan after his victory in the second round of the elections last Sunday.

Maduro had been in Saudi Arabia in 2015 and 2016, when he promoted the recovery and stabilization of crude oil prices, official sources indicated.

The bilateral relations between Caracas and Riyadh are based on their concurrence in the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries(OPEC), as both countries were founders of OPEC on September 14th, 1960.
