SEVASTOPOL, June 10. /TASS/. Nicaraguan ambassador to Russia, Juan Ernesto Vasquez Araya, proposes to relocate the shipments of Russian grain bound for his country to the port of Sevastopol from Novorossiysk. He said on Wednesday at a meeting with the Russian President's plenipotentiary representative in the Crimean Federal District, Oleg Belaventsev, and the Governor of the Federal City of Sevastopol, Sergei Menyailo.
In return, ships could bring back from Nicaragua the goods consumed by tourists rum, cigars, coffee, and bananas, he said.
"Nicaragua has already purchased 75,000 tons of (Russian) grain since the beginning of the year and it is going to purchase another 25,000 tons," Ambassador Araya said. "I've had a familiarization tour in this city and I thought, why don't we deliver grain via Sevastopol?"
"I don't have the slightest doubts Crimea will continue developing as a tourist destination and that's why we're ready to bring certain commodities here," he said.
In addition to it, he believes experts on maritime technologies from Sevastopol could help the Nicaraguans with the upgrading of their fishery fleet. The Nicaraguan government could respond to this by giving concession to a sector of the Nicaraguan water area to Crimean fishery companies.
Also, the ambassador expressed a wish that Sevastopol should become a twin of one or another city in Nicaragua. He added he was ready to open a Nicaraguan mission in Crimea.
Oleg Belaventsev suggested on his part the opening of a Nicaraguan Trade House in Sevastopol.
Gov Menyailo expressed the hope concrete agreements could be reached during the St Petersburg Economic Forum, held from June 18 through June 20.
