Also thanked president Hugo Chávez for his condolences over the recent terrorists acts in Moscow
Russian Prime Minister, Vladimir Putin, rejects claims against Venezuela regarding alleged links with terrorist groups.
“We have an extensive data base about those that support terrorism and we have had no information indicating that Venezuela supports terrorism. If this was true, I would not be here, despite how good the economic cooperation might be.”
The Russian Primer Minister said this in a press conference with Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez in the Miraflores Palace. This was the conclusion of an intense work agenda that started very early on Friday, April 2nd.
Vladimir Putin also thanked President Hugo Chávez for his “condolences over the last acts”, referring to a suicide bomb attack that occurred in the Moscow subway last March 30th. 38 people died as a consequence of this attack.
This is the first visit of the Russian Prime Minister to Venezuela. During this visit 31 cooperation agreements were signed.
