“I would like to note that Russia ranks third for investment in the Guatemalan economy,” he said. “This means that Russia makes two times more capital investment in our country’s economy than Mexico, for instance.”
Lavrov said “a decision to hold the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi is connected with Guatemala.” “We are looking forward to the upcoming Olympics.
