Bolivia’s new president Luis Arce announced on Thursday morning that his government will restore diplomatic ties with the regimes of Iran and Venezuela, receiving the credentials of ambassadors from the two nations.

On his Twitter account, Arce said that his government wants to “reestablish diplomatic relations damaged by the previous de-facto government” led by conservative interim president Jeanine Anez.

He also said that his new government was restoring bilateral relations with the socialist regime of Venezuela “to strengthen strategic ties for the good of our peoples.” Arce pointed out that the same was being done with Iran and that “they are always welcome in Bolivia. We will continue to strengthen common projects.”

The regimes of Iran and Venezuela were two of the main allies for former Bolivian president and Arce ally Evo Morales, who swept to office as the country’s first indigenous president in the year 2006 and resigned under pressure over disputed elections in 2019.
