Turkey, Venezuela making efforts to boost ties: Erdogan

President Maduro visited President Putin last year and is on his way to make a second visit now

"We will continue to trade, sell gold with the transparency and legality of our two countries [and] Venezuela produces what it has the right to sell it in the world", he added.

Maduro has become increasingly isolated in the world under growing sanctions led by the USA and the European Union which accuse him of undermining democratic institutions to hold onto power, while overseeing an economic and political crisis worse than the Great Depression.

Figures from the Turkish Statistical Institute say that in the first nine months of the year, Turkey bought $900 million in gold mined in Venezuela - revenue that has helped replace the government's crashing oil revenues.

According to data released by Coin Dance, transactions in BTC in the country reached 1,284 BTC ($5.1 million).

The United States and several European nations have sanctioned Maduro's administration in an attempt to pressure Venezuela into making a return to democratic ways.

In the face of such threats, Ankara will work to enhance trade ties with Venezuela to help the Latin American state deal with its economic crisis, Erdogan said.

Hawaiian monk seal has eel removed from its nose
Another theory is that seals trying to regurgitate swallowed eels might accidentally send the slippery fish out the wrong hole. The episode was just the latest eel-in-snout incident to occur in the past two years, baffling researchers.

The Venezuelan government has been facing a series of U.S. embargoes targeting its economy and the country's officials since 2014, under the pretext of alleged human rights abuses and threats to U.S. national security.

Maduro's statement came during a joint press conference with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan, who is visiting Caracas.

Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Maduro had travelled to Moscow specifically to ask Russian Federation - itself the target of United States sanctions - for financial assistance.

Maduro responded by saying that his government has overcome the challenges it faced.

Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro arrived in Moscow on Tuesday to meet with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, a spokesman for the Venezuelan Embassy in Russia informed TASS.

He also said Turkey plans to build a mosque in Caracas at Venezuela's request.
