At a ceremony during Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s visit to Iran on Saturday, an Iranian shipbuilding company successfully delivered the second large oil tanker ordered by Venezuela.

In comments at the event, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi said the delivery of the oil tanker would help the Venezuelan government in achieving independence in the sea freight industry and also reveals that the “determination and unity of the struggling and revolutionary nations and governments are much stronger and more effective than the American sanctions.”

He said while the common enemies of Iran and Venezuela have imposed extensive restrictions and cruel sanctions on the two nations, the manufacturing of the vessel that can carry 113,000 mt of oil signifies Iran’s great capabilities in exporting technical and engineering services and also proves the effectiveness of the resistance economy as a model.

Raisi also hailed the cooperation between Iran and Venezuela as a suitable model for all developing and independent states that proves the power of interaction.

The oil tanker, which is of the Aframax type, has been manufactured by Sadra shipbuilding company in southern Iran.
