The United States is imposing illegal sanctions against both Venezuela and Iran, causing great hardship and the suffering of thousands of people in these countries. Today, the natural alliance between Caracas and Tehran, which took root in the early days of the Bolivarian revolution, provides mutual life lines in defiance of a US economic and naval blockade. This webinar aims at providing critical analysis of the historical, regional, and geopolitical context of this alliance.
