MOSCOW, October 9 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Defense Minister General of the Army Sergei Shoigu will pay a first ever official visit to Brazil and Peru on October 14-17. During his visit to Peru due on October 14-15 Shoigu will have talks with his Peruvian counterpart Pedro Cateriano and will meet with President of Peru Ollanta Humala, Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov told journalists on Wednesday.
In Brazil, where Shoigu will stay on October 16-17, he is to meet Vice-president Michel Temer, Defense Minister Celso Amorim and visit the air defense command post of the Brazilian Air Force.
