Iran has proposed Venezuela creation of a joint committee on bilateral maritime and port cooperation.

The proposal was made by Mohammad Rastad, Managing Director of Iran’s Port and Maritime Organisation (PMO) in a meeting with Venezuela National Institute of Civil Aviation Caretaker President Carlos José Vieira Acevedo in Tehran on Sunday, PMO reports. 

The Iranian official stressed that Tehran is ready to develop commercial shipping and use various capacities of the Iranian commercial fleet.

Riviera, heading a delegation, was representing the Venezuela Ministry of Transport.

The Venezuelan official called Iran an important country in international maritime transport, calling for strengthening of commercial shipping and port cooperation between Tehran and Caracas.

He called on Iranian maritime authorities to share their expertise with Venezuela as there are numerous small ports in many cities across the country, saying Caracas priority is to develop them.

Iran and Venezuela signed a shipping and maritime agreement in 2003.

“Given the friendly ties between Iran and Venezuela, there is a ready path to continue maritime cooperation,” said the PMO managing director.
