Turkish Vice President Fuat Oktay arrived in Venezuela’s capital late Wednesday to attend President Nicolas Maduro’s inauguration ceremony.

Speaking to reporters after landing at Simon Bolivar Airport, Oktay said Turkey and Venezuela will have the opportunity to discuss bilateral relations and regional developments.

After being welcomed by Venezuelan officials, Oktay expressed his happiness over the two countries' relations, which had made great progress recently.

He said President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s historical visit to Venezuela in December took bilateral ties to new levels.

Maduro is preparing to take his oath of office Thursday to start his second six-year term.
