Heading a high-ranking delegation, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Venezuela Jorge Alberto Arreaza Montserrat is slated to arrive in Tehran on Sunday night, Mousavi stated.

The top diplomat plans to held talks with senior Iranian officials, including Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, on issues of mutual interest, he said.

In October 2019, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani held a meeting with his Venezuelan counterpart Nicolas Maduro on the sidelines of the Non-Aligned Movement Summit in Baku.

In the gathering, the Iranian president lauded the resistance of the Iranian and Venezuelan nations against the US bullying and pressure as "praiseworthy", saying Washington's plots against the Islamic Republic and the Latin American country have failed.

Last week, following the American assassination of top Iranian commander Lt. General Qassem Soleimani, Venezuela's Defense Minister General Vladimir Padrino Lopez condemned the US move as "a terrorist act", stressing that Caracas will side with Tehran in the campaign against the global arrogance.
