Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro has arrived home at the Simon Bolivar International Airport in Maiquetia after completing an international tour.
Maduro said his visits to Algeria, Russia, Belarus and Turkey were successful, "This tour of the New World has been a total success, from the economic and financial point of view for the country's recovery process, from the energy, industrial and technological and agricultural fields."
Maduro added that the trip was also paved "the way for ...new energy agreements for the state-run oil company PDVSA."
"We signed bilateral agreements benefiting both sides equally."
The president said he had been touring the "new world to which Venezuela belongs to, a multipolar world that respects us, this world where we can integrate into equal conditions without hegemonic empire."
"The world from now on can not be the world of threats, war. It has to be the world of dialogue, of closeness. That is the international policy of Bolivarian Venezuela," he said.
During the tour, the head of state sought to strengthen ties with Algeria, Russia, Belarus and Turkey - nations with which Venezuela shares energy, agroindustrial, tourism, military, scientific, technological, commercial, financial and industrial agreements.
In Moscow, Maduro held a working meeting with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, reinforcing diplomatic ties and strategic relations.
The Venezuelan head of state also took part in the Forum Russia Energy Week 2017.
Russia and Venezuela are members of the OPEC sub-committee that determines oil production and pricing. Some reports say OPEC countries will soon reduce production by 1,758,000 barrels per day in order to drive up international oil prices, which fell from US$110 in the 2010-2012 timeframe to US$20 in 2014.
Maduro said he would provide further details of his tour in a news conference on Sunday.
