The Islamic Republic of Iran continues to improve its cooperation with Venezuela, now by the creation of a pharmacy network in the socialist-ruled South American country. 

Carrying Iranian medical products, the brand new chain of drugstores is meant to tackle the dire scarcity of medicines hitting Venezuelans as a result of US' economic sanctions that impede imports.

Caracas Mayor's office and the Iranian Embassy have signed an agreement that gives birth to the network. Officials hail the deal.However, from the opposition, some express criticism. But experts say the Venezuela-Iran alliance for medicines is a right move.

Experts say that Iran's state- of-the art science guarantees the successful development of the new pharmacy network in the Latin American nation, which currently faces a US ban on medicine imports.
