The two heads of state discussed “developing relations of friendship and prospects of joint cooperation” between the two countries, the Qatar News Agency said.

The talks focused in particular on “energy, the economy, investment, agriculture and tourism”, the agency added.

The emir said on Twitter that the two “discussed ways of strengthening cooperation between our two countries in many areas for the good and well-being of our two peoples.”

Maduro said on Twitter that “we work for the construction of a cooperation map for the welfare of the Venezuelan people and for the union and brotherhood among nations”.

The Venezuelan leader arrived in Qatar on Tuesday.

His trip was scheduled to last two days, diplomatic sources said.

Maduro was in Iran at the weekend, and signed a 20-year cooperation agreement with the Islamic republic. 

Irán and Venezuela are both members of the OPEC alliance of oil producers and both are subject to US sanctions.
