Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s remarks and answers to questions at a joint news conference with Foreign Minister of Guatemala Carlos Raul Morales following the Russia-Central American Integration System (SICA) meeting in Guatemala, March 26, 2015

    
 
 

We have held a useful and significant event with tremendous prospects.

Russia has developed relations with the Central American Integration System (SICA) for quite a while – since the late 1990s. Today, we have reached a completely new level of cooperation. The Russian Federation has addressed SICA Secretary General Victoria Marina Velásquez with an official request to review the issue of giving us the status of an extra-regional observer at SICA. It was welcomed unanimously and, as the Chairman of our meeting, Foreign Minister of Guatemala Carlos Morales said, it will be reviewed promptly. I hope this will happen.

We have endorsed a joint statement on the primary directions of our future efforts. We have agreed to start working on another document – a memorandum that would specify and unite these areas of activity. They embrace trade, investment, the economy as a whole, education, the prevention of emergencies, enhanced readiness for natural disasters, the organisation of cultural, humanitarian and educational exchanges, and tourism.  Full story Full Story
 

 
 
 
 
Statement by Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at a joint news conference with Guatemalan Foreign Minister Carlos Raúl Morales, Guatemala, March 26, 2015

    
 
 

Thank you very much, my dear colleague and friend.

I am very pleased to be in Guatemala again. This is a special city for the people of Russia. It was here that the International Olympic Committee announced its decision in 2007 to hold the 22nd Winter Olympic Games in Sochi in 2014. This decision and the Games have become yet another symbol of the friendship between our countries moving forward.

Our bilateral relations are on the upswing: we maintain a very good, trust-based political dialogue; we have bright prospects in trade, and investment is growing substantially. Last year Jorge Briz, president of the Guatemalan Chamber of Commerce visited Russia and met with our business community. These contacts should be continued because it is direct ties between the business communities of the two countries that create the best prospects.

We are encouraging contacts between our parliaments. This year a delegation of the Federation Council will visit Guatemala. We are also interested in developing cultural contacts and are looking forward to the visit of the Rector of San Carlos University to Russia.  Full story Full Story
 

 
 
 
 
Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s statement for the press at a joint news conference following talks with President of the Republic of Nicaragua Daniel Ortega, Managua, March 25, 2015

    
 
 

Thank you, Comandante,

We would like to thank our Nicaraguan friends for their traditional hospitality. I paid a visit to your country last year. Positive changes that have taken place since then can already be seen in the capital, reflecting the government’s efforts to improve the socioeconomic situation and the quality of life.

This is important to us, since Nicaragua is Russia’s close friend and ally. We are interested in the improvement of the quality of life in the country, which is actually happening. This is also important for our bilateral relations. By fostering economic and social development in our two countries we create new opportunities for implementing major mutually beneficial projects. These qualitative shifts can already be seen in the operations of the Intergovernmental Commission for Trade and Economic Cooperation, which approved a number of new, interesting projects during its December 2014 meeting last year, including on the establishment of joint ventures. We are committed to facilitating direct contacts between entrepreneurs of Russia and Nicaragua. Russia will be happy to welcome the Nicaraguan business delegation at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum this summer.  Full story Full Story
