Iran's official IRNA news agency reported Tuesday that Defense Minister Mostafa Mohammed Najjar met with Venezuelan Vice President Ramon Carrizalez, who is also the acting defense minister.

Najjar was quoted as saying defense ties are being developed as part of "a long-term plan" and that cooperation with Venezuela "has experienced a leap that we're seeking to accelerate in this visit."

IRNA said Najjar arrived Monday leading an Iranian delegation for three-day visit. President Hugo Chavez's government did not immediately comment on the talks.
