President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro held a conference call on Thursday to discuss a range of issues, including the upcoming presidential elections in both countries, bilateral relations and the Extraordinary Summit of the Organization for Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Istanbul.

In the call, Erdogan said he hoped the presidential elections set to be held on May 20 in Venezuela will be held in an atmosphere of peace and will prove beneficial for the country, reminding that Turkey, too, will be holding elections on June 24.

He added that an official visit to Venezuela was among his top priorities after the elections.

The Turkish president wished his Venezuelan counterpart success in the polls before thanking Maduro for his participation in the OIC summit set to be held in Istanbul today.

The previous extraordinary meeting of the OIC was also hosted by Erdogan and held in December last year to denounce U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Venezuela had also joined the meeting, showing solidarity with Turkey.

Maduro said he was closely following the developments in the Middle East, adding "We are supporting all Muslim countries and Palestine, particularly with all that has happened in Palestine recently."

The Venezuelan president also said he was pleased that the strategic relationship between the two countries continues to flourish with closer contacts.
