BOGOTA, October 14 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu has arrived in Peru to discuss prospects for stronger military cooperation, including military education and technical cooperation, the South American country’s Defence Ministry said on Sunday.
Shoigu will meet his Peruvian counterpart Pedro Cateriano and will be received by President Ollanta Humala in his palace on Tuesday.
On his visit Shoigu is accompanied by his deputy Anatoly Antonov, the head of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation, Alexander Fomin, and 20 senior officials of the Defence Ministry.
The visit’s schedule includes several bilateral meetings and the signing of an agreement in military education.
Former Peruvian defence minister Daniel Mora, who is a member of the Congress’s committee of defence, internal control and intelligence, said Shoigu’s visit was of special importance for Peru.
“Peru’s Ground Troops and Air Force have always been maintaining close cooperation with the Soviet Union, and now - with Russia,” he said, adding that Peru had started modernising its armed forces with Russia’s military hardware and equipment. “We have deep cooperation with Russia, including important technological projects.”
The next leg of Shoigu’s tour is Brazil, where he will fly from Peru on October 15 to meet his counterpart Celso Amorim.
