Russia plans to take steps to strengthen Venezuela's armed forces, RIA news agency cited Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov as saying on Friday.

Russia is a staunch ally of embattled socialist President Nicolas Maduro and has backed him alongside China, while most western powers have backed opposition leader Juan Guaido.

"I want to underline that I am talking specifically about work with equipment which was delivered there," Ryabkov was quoted as saying.
