The Jamaica Gleaner reports that Venezuelan president Nicolás Maduro will travel to Trinidad and Tobago in the coming weeks to sign new agreements on exploration of cross-border Loran-Manatee gas fields and a possible ferry between ports in Venezuela and the twin-island country:
Maduro, who was speaking with the International media last week, said he will sign a fresh round of broad ranging agreements, including pacts on joint exploration of cross-border Loran-Manatee gas fields and the possible establishment of a water taxi between ports in Venezuela and Trinidad and Tobago.
“I expect to visit Trinidad and Tobago soon to sign new agreements worked on beforehand by the foreign affairs minister and the governor of Sucre state, “ said Madura, who is the head of the ruling socialist party Partido Socialista Unido de Venezuela (PSUV).
Earlier this month, Maduro during a visit to Russia said he hoped to strengthen cooperation and development between Russia and Trinidad and Tobago. Russia and Venezuela are members of the Oil Producing and Exporting Countries (OPEC) sub-committee that determines its oil production and pricing. [. . .]
