RIGA, July 24 (Itar-Tass) —— Latvian President Andris Berzins declared there were no obstacles for Russian President Vladimir Putin to visit Latvia while Berzins remains in office as the Latvian president, Berzins told local television LETA on Tuesday.
Berzins stressed there were no reasons why this visit should not take place. Both big and minor players ought to cooperate, the Latvian president said. He praised good human contacts between him and the Russian president and underlined there were no grounds for pessimism in this respect. Things are going ahead step by step, Berzins said. He expressed confidence that in the near future contacts between Latvia and Russia would be intensified.
The former president of Latvia paid a first ever official visit of a Latvian president to Moscow in December 2010 when a number of important agreements were signed in such fields as the struggle against organized crime, a facilitated regime of border crossing for residents of border territories, cooperation in emergency situations and prevention of double taxation.
Afterwards, Latvia sent an invitation to the president of the Russian Federation, asking him to visit Latvia in return.
