Other agreements signed during the visit include a series of memoranda of understanding on building oil tankers and a power plant in Venezuela with Russian help, leasing of Russian generators and purchase of civilian planes from Russia.

The two sides also discussed plans to open air travel routes between Russian and Venezuelan capitals.

During his brief visit, Putin also met Bolivian President Evo Morales, who traveled to the Venezuelan capital to meet the Russian leader.

The relationship and cooperation between Russia and Venezuela have been strengthened in recent years. Chavez has visited Russia for eight times in his 11 years in office, while Russian President Dmitry Medvedev visited Venezuela in 2008.

"Russia and Venezuela will be closer each day," said Chavez during Putin's visit.
