Venezuela’s Maduro Says It Could Be ‘A Good Idea’ To Buy Iranian Missiles

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said it could be a “good idea” to look into buying missiles from Iran.

“It had not occurred to me, it had not occurred to us,” Maduro said during a televised broadcast with cabinet members, instructing Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino to follow up the plan, Reuters reported.

“Padrino, what a good idea, to speak with Iran to see what short, medium and long range missiles they have, and if it is possible, given the great relations we have with Iran.”
