    BUENOS AIRES (Sputnik) - The presidents of Bolivia and Russia will meet in Moscow on 11 July to discuss bilateral cooperation in the gas sector and research of nuclear technologies, Bolivian Foreign Minister Diego Pary Rodriguez said Wednesday.

    “We have a detailed cooperation agenda with Russia, and we are currently discussing which agreements will be signed during Bolivian President Evo Morales’s visit on 11 July", Rodriguez told reporters on the sidelines of the UN Conference on South-South Cooperation.

    According to the minister, the agenda of the talks between Morales and Russian President Vladimir Putin includes cooperation in the gas sector, investments for the creation of a Centre for Nuclear Research in Bolivia, and bilateral trade.

    In 2018, Russian Ambassador Vladimir Sprinchan said that Russia will help Bolivia build a nuclear centre to research radiation technologies applied in agriculture, medicine, and various industries.
