MOSCOW, June 14. /TASS/. The positions of Moscow and Montevideo are similar on many issues, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Tuesday at the meeting with Uruguayan Vice President Raul Sendic.
"This is not your visit to Russia but today you arrived in the new capacity," Lavrov said. "We appreciate the opportunity to hold a meeting in the Foreign Ministry because positions of Russia and Uruguay on many international issues are very close or even the same," he added.
"We highly assessed the recent interview of the Uruguayan president to Russian television where he clearly confirmed adherence to partnership with Russia. We absolutely support the same track," the foreign minister noted.
"We hope that your participation in the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum will allow to establish additional projects in the trade and economic sphere," Lavrov concluded.
Uruguayan Vice President Raul Sendic said Uruguay is working on preparing a visit of its President Tabare Vazquez to Russia to strengthen the ties between the two countries.
"The world is going through a difficult moment, it is necessary to fight against hegemony," he said. "To do so it is necessary to strengthen the ties between Russia and Latin American countries. This includes the fight against terrorism, the fight against climate change and the struggle for better living standards of our peoples."
"We (are) in a difficult situation because of falling raw materials prices, and Russia is in a difficult situation because of a decline in oil prices," he went on to say. "At this time, it is important to lend a helping hand to each other."
"Uruguayan president’s visit to Russia would be important for cementing relations, we are working to make this a reality," Sendic said.
