The sixth Iranian ship, this time loaded with food, will arrive this Sunday on Venezuela coasts , defying repeated threats from the United States.
As reported by the embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Caracas (the Venezuelan capital), the Persian vessel, called Golsan, will dock in the next few hours in the Caribbean country with food destined for the opening of the “first Iranian supermarket” in Venezuela.
“Tomorrow (Sunday, June 21) the Golsan ship will arrive, bringing food to open the first Iranian supermarket in Venezuela,” says the cream of the Iranian diplomatic headquarters, published on Saturday in her Twitter account.
The message also highlights that this initiative represents “another success in friendly and fraternal relations” between Iran and Venezuela, countries affected by unjust sanctions implemented by the government of US President Donald Trump.
The new information comes to light a day after several Western media reported the approach of an Iranian-flagged vessel to Venezuela’s jurisdictional waters.
The Persian country sent five tankers to Venezuela last May, loaded with 1.53 million barrels of gasoline and additives, to alleviate the great fuel shortage that the South American nation suffers as a result of the sanctions imposed by the United States.
After that act, the US government, which was seeking to thwart the financial alliance Iran and Venezuela, threatened to impose sanctions on ports, shipping companies and insurers that facilitate the shipment of Persian gasoline to the South American country.
However, all vessels arrived in Venezuela, one after the other, without the US It would do nothing to prevent it, despite having threatened to intervene if the Islamic Republic delivered fuel to the Caribbean country.
It was the first time that Iran exported fuel to Latin America, and it did so within the framework of the alliance between Tehran and Caracas, which seeks to supply Venezuela in the midst of US coercive measures. to overthrow the government of the legitimate president of the South American country, Nicolás Maduro.
Tehran has made it clear that trade between Iran and Venezuela is characteristic of two independent countries and, therefore, this matter does not concern third parties.
