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

The president also said Venezuela had handed over two schools affiliated with the FETÖ - the group behind the 2016 coup attempt in Turkey - to a Turkish education body.

The Turkish leader made the remarks during a joint press conference with Maduro in Caracas, where he arrived late Sunday as part of his official tour of Latin America.

The US has accused Venezuela's government of violating human rights and triggering an economic meltdown.

"Political problems can not be resolved by punishing an entire nation", Erdogan said, with Maduro by his side at a forum attended by business people from both countries.

About assassination attempt on Maduro, Erdoğan said the attempt was a "dastardly attack" on both the president and Venezuelan people's "will for independence".

Turkey is determined to further enhance relations with Venezuela, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said on December 3 during his historical visit to the Latin American country.

Erdoğan said geographic distance between Turkey and Venezuela should not be seen as "obstacle" to strengthen bilateral ties and cooperation.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro conferred the country's highest distinction, the Order of the Liberator, on his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan during the event, local media reported.

"It is very petty to try to use an illegal sanction to prevent Venezuela from selling its gold to the world", he said.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan (L) and Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro attend an agreement-signing ceremony between Turkey and Venezuela at Miraflores Palace in Caracas, Venezuela, December 3, 2018.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro insists that national gold exports should continue despite sweeping U.S. sanctions targeting the industry.

In November, Washington imposed new restrictions against Venezuela targeting its gold exports.

The sanctions, which target United States individuals and companies trading in Venezuelan gold, were announced by National Security Advisor John Bolton.

Nicolas Maduro has also said that the country had the right to sell its gold as it deemed proper amid prospective United States sanctions on Venezuela's gold reserve.

Massive inflation and a shortage of basic commodities such as foodstuffs and medicine have forced an estimated 2.3 million Venezuelans to immigrate to other South American countries.

Maduro added he remains "in permanent contact" with the Russian leader.

According to Maduro, he was planning to hold "a very intense and very important meeting" with Putin later on Tuesday.
