IRÁN EN EL ACTUAL ESCENARIO INTERNACIONAL: EL ASCENSO DE LAS RELACIONES CON AMÉRICA LATINA
ResumenThis article will discuss Iran’s relations with Latin America,
particularly Venezuela. The study will be conducted from the
commercial-economic, political-diplomatic and cultural levels.
Venezuela is a key international player for Iran as its main
ally in the Latin American scene, a region in which it’s interested
in adding other partners, such as Ecuador, Bolivia and Brazil.
The article will also address the joint between the bilateral
relationships with the respective regional policies (triangulations).
The policies of the U.S. and Israel will be explored, since they
are key actors in the foreign policy of both countries. While the
relationship between Venezuela and Iran on oil is several decades,
the novelty of the present context is that such a linkage
was extended beyond the framework of OPEC.
The agreements provide for joint projects to develop in different
areas such as basic industries, mining, agriculture and land,
energy and oil, science and technology as well as consular and
political aspects. Currently it is estimated that there have been
more than 192 joint projects.
