Report: New Iranian Ship Docks in Venezuela

CARACAS – What may seem the continuation of their trade relationship overlooking the harsh general sanctions imposed by Washington, a new Iranian-flagged ship was reported to dock in the Venezuelan port of La Guaira on Thursday, Refinitiv Eikon data showed.

Refinitiv Eikon pointed out that the Golsan, a general cargo vessel, is owned by Mosakhar Darya Shipping Co. and set sail from an Iranian port in November of last year.

The Golsan was previously in the country in July 2020 with a huge food cargo to supply Megasis, the first Iranian supermarket located in Venezuela’s capital. Subsequently, the ship sailed back to Iran with a cargo of alumina, an ore produced from bauxite that is mined from topsoil in various tropical and subtropical regions.

Julio Borges, the Presidential Commissioner for Foreign Affairs of the interim government led by Juan Guaidó, said regarding the arrival of the Gosan that the ship belongs to a sanctioned company that cooperates with the illicit activities of Teheran. He also expressed his concern about the constant exchange of goods between the two nations since, in his view, they promote “terrorism and organized crime,” adding that Iran is one of the top antidemocratic countries helping the leftist government of Nicolás Maduro cling to power.

It is unclear what type of cargo was transported by the Golsan while Venezuela’s Information Ministry or the Embassy of Iran in the country declined to comment on the issue, Reuters said.
