The President of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro has planned a trip to Russia. "I am going to visit Russia soon. We will strengthen bilateral relations," Maduro said at a press conference in Caracas, RIA Novosti reports.
According to the Venezuelan leader, his country intends to strengthen ties with Russia in the military-technical sphere.
Earlier, Maduro said that the United States violated international law. "The administration of U.S. President Donald Trump threatens us with military intervention. This is a serious statement. The United States is thereby violating international law, since the use of sanctions and the threat of force are prohibited in resolving bilateral issues," Maduro stressed.
In his opinion, Venezuela is a target of aggression, a large-scale libel campaign, and fake news. Maduro noted that the country intends to counter this with the help of the media. "We do not have warheads or military bases abroad," the Venezuelan president added.
