    Venezuelan FM to arrive to Moscow for talks on May 29

    Venezuelan Foreign Minister Elias Jaua is expected to hold talks with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov in May 29.

    "The negotiations between Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov and Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jaua - who will be in Russia as head of the delegation to hold the tenth meeting of the high-level intergovernmental Russian-Venezuelan committee - will take place in Moscow on May 29. This is the first visit of Jaua as the Venezuelan foreign minister," the Russian Foreign Ministry posted a statement on its website.

    "During the meeting the minister will exchange opinions on main issues of the bilateral agenda with the emphasis on advancing political dialogue and cooperation on the international arena," the document said. "Lavrov and Jaua will pay special attention to discussing regional problems and topics of enhancing the Russian-Venezuelan cooperation in multi-party organizations," the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

    According to the statement, "following the talks the ministers will sign a plan of political consultations between the Russian and Venezuelan Foreign Ministries for 2015-2018."

    "Venezuela is one of Russia's leading partners in Latin America and on the international arena, cooperation with it is of a strategic character," the Russian Foreign Ministry said, Interfax reports.

    "Our countries support forming a more just and multi-polar world order based on the supremacy of international law with a central and coordinating role of the UN on issues concerning maintaining global peace and security. Acting this way, Russia and Venezuela show unity in their assessments of events in Ukraine, and support consistently resolving the situation in Syria and the nuclear program with solely political and diplomatic methods and using truly democratic principles in international relations, including in the human rights direction," the statement said.

    At the same time, "taking into account the significance of Venezuela for the entire Latin American region, we express solidarity with the friendly people of this state and our strong support for the course of [Venezuelan President] Nicolas Maduro's government aimed at not allowing the destabilization of the domestic political situation and organizing nationwide dialogue in the interests of overcoming disagreements existing in Venezuelan society in the constitutional field and without destructive interference from the outside," the document said.

    Russia's Rosneft signs bonus agreement for oil-field access in Venezuela

    Russian state-owned oil company Rosneft has signed a deal with Venezuelan counterpart PDVSA corresponding to a $440 million partial payment for access to a heavy-oil project in the South American country.

    "We've signed ... an agreement for the collection of Rosneft's first payment of $440 million for access to PetroVictoria's area on Sept. 1," Venezuela's vice president responsible for the economy, Rafael Ramirez, said at a press conference.

    All foreign companies interested in working in Venezuela's energy sector must first pay the government a so-called "bono de acceso" for those rights.

    PetroVictoria, a joint venture in which PDVSA has a 60 percent stake and Rosneft has the remaining 40 percent, owns the Carabobo-2 project in eastern Venezuela's Orinoco Belt.

    Ramirez, who is also Venezuela's oil minister and president of PDVSA, said the two companies also signed agreements to create joint ventures for developing other projects in the Orinoco Belt and for specialized oil services.

    Venezuela holds nearly 300 billion barrels of proved oil reserves, or around 25 percent of the global total, international certification processes have shown.

    The South American country produces approximately 3 million barrels of oil per day and exports roughly 2.5 million bpd, mainly to the United States and China, according to official figures. EFE

    Trust between Venezuela, Russia key element in development of bilateral relations

    CARACAS, December 16. /TASS/. Trust between Russia and Venezuela is a key element if development of bilateral ties, the foundations of which were laid by Presidents Hugo Chavez and Vladimir Putin, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said here on Monday after talks with the Venezuelan Foreign Minister, Rafael Ramirez.

    “Trust between our countries is the backbone element in the bilateral relationship laid down by the leader of the Bolivarian revolution, Hugo Chavez, and President Vladimir Putin of Russia,” he said, adding that his talks with Ramirez had embraced a broad spectrum of issues and had been fruitful.

    Venezuela has become one of Russia’s main partners in Latin America. Their trade reached a record $ 2.4 billion last year.

    “Our countries take a consolidated position in the international arena,” he said, expressing Russia’s gratitude for the support it received from Venezuela on the Ukrainian problem.

    Ramirez said on his part a further strengthening of collaboration between Caracas and Moscow would become his country’s response to the sanctions introduced by the U.S.

    He singled out development of ties in defence and related technologies and said they would enable Venezuela to raise the combat readiness of its armed forces.

    The U.S. has taken on the role of a global gendarme and Venezuela’s response in this situation is a closer union with Russia, the countries making up the Latin American Bolivarian Alliance, the Union of South American Nations /UNASUR/, and China, Ramirez said.

    Venezuela deserves due respect and it will build up relations with all the countries sharing its views of the multipolar world, he said.

    Also Rogozin said, that strange inconsistencies have occurred in the construction of a factory that is supposed to do licensed assembly of Kalashnikov assault rifles in Venezuela.

    Cooperation in defence-related technologies was one of the items on the agenda of their negotiations as co-chairpersons of the Russian-Venezuelan high-level commission.

    As he answered a question by TASS, Rogozin said it was yet to be established why the current contractor had received the contract for building the factory.

    “The general contractor will be changed and the deadline for completing the construction works has been put off to the end of 2015,” he said.

    Russia and Venezuela will set up a mechanism of tough control over how their bilateral decisions are fulfilled, Rogozin said.

    “Our Venezuelan partners and I made an arrangement to set up a mechanism of tough control over how bilateral agreements are fulfilled,” he wrote in his microblog.

    The two countries signed an agreement on building a factory for assembling the Kalashnikov guns of series 100 in Venezuela in July 2006. The document said Venezuelan technology experts and specialists would be trained for a full licensed production cycle of cycle of AK-103 guns.

    The factory is expected to assemble about 25,000 Kalashnikov automatic assault rifles annually.

    Putin to talk oil prices, bilateral ties with Venezuelan president Thursday — Kremlin

    MOSCOW, January 14. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin is due on Thursday to hold talks with his Venezuelan counterpart Nicolas Maduro, who will arrive in Russia on a working visit, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said.

    “In fact, President Putin plans to hold such a meeting on Thursday,” Peskov said, confirming earlier reports from Venezuelan sources.

    The sides will focus on bilateral Russian-Venezuelan relations, and namely particular projects in energy, and banking and financial sector, Peskov said.

    “Of course, the topics will include the situation on the global oil markets, and also other topical issues,” he added.

    Last week, the Venezuelan leader visited several OPEC nations and also China to hold a number of high-level discussions to continue the effort to restore world oil prices, which have fallen to their lowest in almost six years.

    During the diplomatic tour, Maduro held talks with Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Salman, Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, as well as Algeria’s President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, Iranian leader Hassan Rouhani and Chinese President Xi Jinping.

    Venezuela is among the world’s ten largest oil exporters. According to a US Energy Information Administration (EIA) 2012 report, Venezuela’s oil exports reached 1.7 million barrels. Saudi Arabia took the top spot with exports estimated at 8.8 million barrels per day.

    After a meeting on November 27 in Vienna, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) decided to keep a daily oil production quota at the level of 30 million barrels, which sent oil prices further down.

    Headquartered in Vienna, OPEC includes 12 countries, namely Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, Qatar, Libya, the United Arab Emirates, Algeria, Nigeria, Ecuador, and Angola. Russia, Mexico, Egypt and Oman are observers at the OPEC.

    Inside the oil cartel, Algeria, Venezuela and Iran have conflicting interests with and Saudi Arabia. Amid the US shale revolution, Saudi Arabia is unwilling to give up its market share and is not planning to cut oil production.

    On the way to China on January 5, the Venezuelan leader’s plane made a technical stop at Moscow’s Vnukovo-2 airport where Maduro briefly met with Deputy Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov.

    Venezuelan Minister for Communication and Information Jacqueline Faria wrote on her Twitter account that Maduro’s visit to Moscow signals “solidarity” with the government of Russian President Vladimir Putin in the face of destabilizing actions of the US.

    In late December, Maduro said Washington is conducting an oil war to destroy Russia and Venezuela.

    “A real oil war is underway,” he said. “Its goal is to destroy Russia, to drive Russia into a collapse as a global power …” The current slump in oil prices is also spearheaded at Venezuela, Maduro said.

    “It seeks to turn our country into a colony, to destroy our independence and our revolution with the aid of an economic collapse,” he stressed.

    When meeting with Maduro on Thursday, Putin said Venezuela was a close friend and partner of Russia.

    Maduro assured that Venezuela would be always with Russia.

    Last week, the Venezuelan president visited OPEC member states and China and had talks with their leaders with the aim to continue efforts to restore world oil prices.

    On the way to China on January 5, the Venezuelan president’s plane landed at Moscow’s Vnukovo airport where he met with Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov.

    Russia and Venezuela are developing cooperation in various sectors, including military technical, energy, industrial cooperation and housing construction.

    Venezuela produces three 3 million barrels of oil a day and exports 2.5 million, mainly to the United States and China. It is the world’s fifth oil exporter. The country's oil reserves are estimated at almost 300 billion barrels. Most of the reserves are in the Orinoco Belt.

    Maduro to oversee implementation of agreements on cooperation with Russia 'personally'

    Maduro received Rogozin at a military base near the city of Valencia where Simon Bolivar’s army began its liberation campaign in 1819

    CARACAS, December 7. /TASS/. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro is planning to personally monitor the implementation of the agreements reached within the Russian-Venezuelan High-Level Commission, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin told reporters following bilateral meeting with Venezuela’s leader.

    "President Maduro decided to personally oversee all the agreements, which have been reached during this meeting," he said. "He asked all ministers to brief him on the implementation of the agreements that have been reached on a weekly basis."

    Maduro received Rogozin at a military base near the city of Valencia where Simon Bolivar’s army began its liberation campaign in 1819. According to Rogozin, during the meeting the two sides raised the issues related to political cooperation.

    "Venezuela has traditionally supported Russia’s stance on Syria, Ukraine and, naturally, on Crimea. We support Venezuela’s stance, which is committed to independence and pursues its own policy," Rogozin noted.

    In accordance with diplomatic traditions, the parties exchanged gifts. Maduro presented Rogozin a sculpture of Bolivar’s army soldier made of clay. The Russian deputy prime minister presented the Venezuelan leader a replica of Yuri Gagarin’s navigation watch the world’s first cosmonaut wore during his historic spaceflight.

    Grain export

    Moscow and Caracas will sign a contract on supplying from 30,000 to 50,000 tonnes of grain from Russia to Venezuela, Dmitry Rogozin told reporters following meeting of the Russian-Venezuelan High-Level Commission.

    "A commercial contract consisting of two parts was initialed earlier today and will be signed in January," he said. "The issue at hand is supplying from 30,000 to 50,000 tonnes of wheat to Venezuela, which until now was purchased in Canada and the US."

    According to Rogozin, if Venezuela provides relevant guarantees, in the future Russia could become a leading wheat supplier to that country. The second aspect of cooperation concerns phytosanitary control of products imported from Russia, with Venezuela taking into account their high ecological compatibility.

    Rogozin stressed that until recently cooperation between the two countries was based primarily on two major projects in military-technical cooperation and oil. "This time the High-Level Commission began to discuss for the first time the issues related to the diversification of this cooperation, which now includes several new projects," he said, adding that agriculture where cooperation has huge prospects is among the top priorities.
