Plasencia stated that “we are sure that natural gas guarantees a clean transition and is also the confidence for the development of our towns in the medium and short term.”

In addition, he celebrated the signing of the Doha declaration, which outlines the course to follow so that the foreign use of natural gas generates well-being for the people and contributes to creating development with inclusion.

As part of his agenda parallel to the forum, Plasencia held meetings with the Oil Minister of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Javad Owji; Nigerian Minister of Petroleum Resources, Timipre Sylva; and Egyptian Energy Minister Mohamed Shaker, who currently chairs the GECF.

These meetings had the objective of reinforcing cooperation with these States in the energy field. In the case of the meeting with Shaker, he revealed that his country will contribute to the development of the energy and gas industry in Venezuela.

For its part, the meeting with Owji allowed both nations to ratify their commitment to continue creating new economic spaces for the progress and development of their peoples.

In addition, Venezuela and Iran reiterated their unconditional support in the bilateral and multilateral spheres to contribute to a multipolar world and overcome the unilateral coercive measures imposed by the United States Government.

Plasencia also met with the Minister of Economy of the Federation of Malaysia, Dato’ Sri Mustapa Mohamed, and the Minister of Industry, Mines and Energy of Equatorial Guinea, Gabriel Obiang.

The GECF summit, which seeks to expand cooperation and develop the natural gas industry, was also attended by the president of Petróleos de Venezuela SA (PDVSA), Asdrúbal Chávez.
