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.
