Russian Foreign Minister Continues Latin America Tour

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov will meet today President Daniel Ortega in Nicaragua, as part of a tour through several Latin American countries. We will be pleased to welcome him on behalf of all the people of Nicaragua, said the coordinator of the Communication and Citizenship Council, Rosario Murillo, who specified the meeting with the president will take place in the afternoon.

The Foreign Minister visited Cuba and Colombia yesterday in the context of the tour, which also includes Guatemala, where he will attend a meeting of foreign ministers of the member countries of the Central American Integration System.

The existing links between Managua and Moscow, marked by the return to power in 2007 of the Sandinista National Liberation, were rated as excellent and promising by the international relations secretary of the Front, Jacinto Suarez.

It has been also cataloged it as such by other authorities, who have highlighted the solidarity of Russia, evidenced in actions such as the donation of wheat between 2011 and 2013, and delivery of equipment for geological studies.

In addition, several existing projects in the bilateral area, including the one linked to the GLONASS satellite navigation system, and the work to install in Nicaragua a vaccines manufacturing plant in collaboration with a Russian institute.

In April 2014 Lavrov himself met in this capital with Ortega, and in last February the Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu ratified here cooperation agreements to strengthen the fight against drug trafficking and organized crime. Last year, in what was the first visit by a Russian president to this nation, Vladimir Putin called Nicaragua an important partner of Moscow and stated that relations should continue to develop, especially in the economic sector.
