CAIRO – 20 February 2023: Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry and his Venezuelan counterpart, Yván Gil Pinto, have expressed aspiration to boost cooperation between the two countries in various fields.

Shoukry and Pinto made the remarks in a phone call on Monday, where Shoukry congratulated the new foreign minister for taking over the post, the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.

The ministers discussed a number of files of Egyptian-Venezuelan relations as well as the ongoing cooperation between the two countries in international forums and organizations.

Shoukry and Pinto also discussed means of enhancing mutual support on issues of common concern.

They agree on continuing coordination and intensifying consultations between the state officials from both countries during the coming period.

Pinto has become the new foreign minister of Venezuela under President Nicolás Maduro since January, replacing Carlos Faría, who held the position for less than a year since May 2022.
