The Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro pointed out that he deduced, following his recent international tour to Algeria, Russia, Belarus and Turkey, that his nation “is not alone and has the sympathy, solidarity and support of the whole world.”
Speaking on his Sunday television show, Maduro said the series of visits would strengthen economic, industrial, financial, political and political cooperation.
The head of state said he held talks with more than 25 ministers from the world’s oil and gas producing countries and aims to call a presidential summit at the end of the year or in early 2018.
“We had honest and good conversation. I made my proposal for the new formulas for pricing, which has already begun the debate, and I envisage a summit of heads of state and government very soon, at the end of this year or beginning of 2018, a summit in a place to be agreed upon by OPEC and non-OPEC countries,” he said.
Maduro added that, “We are already going to move our proposal, we hope in the next weeks and months, in a free debate. I am sure that we will achieve a consensus formula that will change the market and the formula to fix oil prices, and that will have direct impact on the gas.”
On the other hand, he accused the Venezuelan opposition of being foolish because they seek to damage everything.
