“In the coming weeks there will be work sessions where a new map of economic, agricultural, energy, social, cultural and political cooperation will be drawn up for the years to come, regarding the new constitutional mandate of President Ortega,” said the head of state.
The Venezuelan president stressed that it is a good time to make a strategic map, as well as to focus on priority issues in the construction of cooperation agreements that strengthen bilateral relations.
President Maduro stressed that the swearing-in of his counterpart Ortega, and of the vice president, Rosario Murillo, was a Latin American and world party, in which the meeting with delegations from Russia, Iran, and Cuba stood out.
“In Nicaragua we feel the weight of history, the energetic beating of the great history of Latin America and the Caribbean, because our history is great as it is heroic, struggled and fought,” emphasized the president.
Referring to the updated data on the pandemic in Venezuela, the president reported that the country reports 448,463 positive Covid-19 cases, since the beginning, with 5,762 active cases.
In the case of those who died from the disease, the president said that the nation registers a total of 5,366 deaths, while 98 percent of the infected people recovered.
Likewise, the Venezuelan head of state pointed out that, although the disease presented with less severity, and the teaching-educational activities, as well as commercial, industrial and cultural activities, will continue to be active, it is important to comply with sanitary measures and be vaccinated against the coronavirus to prevent more infections.
