MOSCOW, October 14 (Itar-Tass) - Russia and Honduras open a new page in the development of relations, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
Opening talks with Honduran Foreign Minister Mireya Aguero on Monday, Lavrov said, “This is the first visit to Moscow by the Honduran foreign minister. Our meeting is significant in light of founding your embassy in Moscow.”
“Over many years the ideological stereotypes have prevented us from developing relations. We succeeded in overcoming them. I’m glad that we’re opening a new page in the development of relations,” the Russian minister said.
“We hope to discuss the problems, which should be solved, in order to give an impetus to cooperation in all fields. We value your government’s resoluteness to develop contacts,” he added.
Aguero praised the talks with Russia. “We hope to develop cooperation in the fields of investments, trade and education. We also hope that we’ll cooperate closely,” the Honduran minister said.
Honduras lauds Russia’s leading role in taking key decisions in the world. “We watch Russia’s moves in international organisations,” she said, adding that Honduras “upholds the country’s proposals on chemical weapons”.
