TEHRAN, July 5 (Xinhua) -- Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi said on Tuesday that through "expanding bilateral ties and using the model of active resistance against the imperialist countries," a victory will be certain for Iran and Venezuela.

Raisi made the remarks in a congratulatory message to his Venezuelan counterpart Nicolas Maduro on the South American country's Independence Day, according to the Iranian presidency's website.

Venezuela's independence is "a symbol of the efforts of freedom-loving countries to abolish the colonial rule," Raisi was quoted as saying.

He expressed the hope that the implementation of the bilateral agreements would help further deepen "the friendly and strategic ties between the two countries."

Iran and Venezuela, both have long been suffering from the U.S. sanctions, signed a 20-year partnership agreement in early June to bolster cooperation in various fields.
