Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro and Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi signed a 20-year cooperation agreement Saturday, a day after Maduro praised the Islamic Republic for sending needed fuel to his nation despite U.S. sanctions. “Tehran’s delivery of oil to Caracas was a great help to the Venezuelan people” Maduro said to Iranian state media. Maduro’s visit to Iran comes amid tensions across the Middle East over the collapse of Iran’s nuclear deal with world powers.
