The Venezuelan ambassador to Iran underlined that “the Iranian oil tankers entered Venezuela amid heightened tension with the U.S… transfer of fuel shows not only the business relations between two independent countries but also shows that unliteral sanctions by the White House will not prevent this legal action”. Describing relations between Tehran and Caracas as “in the best state”, the ambassador opined that “success in delivery of the fuel shows Iran’s geopolitical power which challenges the U.S.’s hegemony and shows the capability to create solidarity in the international energy market… successful delivery of the fuel is a victory for diplomacy”.
