BUENOS AIRES, July 12 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has called for holding the Russia-Argentina Bilateral Culture Year in 2015.
“Next year we’ll mark the 130th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Russia and Argentina. This is a landmark event,” Putin said at expanded talks on Saturday.
“I want to tell you this would be interesting for both countries,” he said.
This would bring closer the peoples of both countries and prove the depth of relations in culture and international affairs, Putin said.
Argentina’s President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner has lauded Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin’s initiative to hold the Bilateral Culture Year in 2015.
“This has become a pleasant surprise for me. Russia’s history is long. The country was created earlier than Argentina that is why we’re happy to take part in this event,” de Kirchner said after expanded talks on Saturday.
Since 2009 Russia and Argentina have worked to maintain strategic partnership. Argentina is one of Russia’s priority partners in Latin America. Cooperation develops in all fields. Trade turnover increased by 16% in 2013. “This is a good sign. But there are chances for increasing mutual trade and diversifying relations,” Putin said.
