He noted that the plane took off with the Iranian foreign minister's aide and the director of the Foreign Ministry Department for the Americas, Mohsen Baharvand, and his delegation on board, who are set to hold political talks with the Venezuelan officials on the current situation in the South American country.

According to Jafarzadeh, a delegation from Mahan Air is also traveling to Caracas to discuss the conditions of maintaining regular flights between the two countries.
