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.
“During the talks Shoigu and his Peruvian and Brazilian counterparts will discuss key international issues, prospects for intensification of bilateral military-technical cooperation and the training of servicemen from Peru and Brazil at Russian military schools,” Antonov said.
"We hope that the first official visit of the Russian defense minister to the Republic of Peru and the Federal Republic of Brazil will open a new chapter in the relationship between the defense ministries of the Russian Federation and the Latin American countries intended for a long -term perspective," the deputy defense minister said.
