MOSCOW, October 14 (RIA Novosti) – Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Monday hailed a historic breakthrough in relations with Honduras as the Latin American country opened its first ever embassy in Moscow.

Lavrov’s Honduran counterpart, Mireya Aguero Trejo de Corrales, said that her visit to Russia marked an important step toward cooperation in trade, investment, culture and education.

Lavrov said that ties between the two nations had for decades been held back by what he called “legal stereotypes.”

The ministers agreed to speed up the finalization of a draft intergovernmental agreement on the abolition of visa requirements, which is expected to strengthen business contacts and promote tourism.
