MOSCOW (Reuters) - Venezuelan Vice President Delcy Rodriguez may visit Moscow soon, Interfax news agency said on Friday, citing Venezuela’s deputy foreign minister.

Venezuela, an ally of Moscow, is in political turmoil and the United States and other Western countries are backing opponents of President Nicolas Maduro.

Earlier Interfax reported that Venezuela’s industry minister, who is visiting Moscow, would meet Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Yuri Borisov on Friday.
