MOSCOW, October 14 (Itar-Tass) - Russia and the Central American Integration System (SICA) are drafting a memorandum on basic principles of cooperation, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said after talks with his Honduran counterpart Mireya Aguero Trejo de Corrales on Monday.
After Honduras unveiled its embassy in the Russian capital, Moscow would have diplomatic missions of all Central American states, Lavrov said. “Russia seeks comprehensive relations with all regional and subregional structures of Latin America and the Caribbean Basin. The Central American Integration System occupies an important place among these structures. We are drafting a memorandum on basic principles of cooperation between Russia and the Central American Integration System,” he said.
“We have agreed that Honduras will support the soonest possible completion of this work,” Lavrov said. “We will discuss the ways to practical cooperation most probably next year, on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly or in the region. We will be glad to see ministers from SICA member-states at our place.”
