    Russia and Argentina have forged an extremely constructive political relationship and will continue to deepen their bilateral ties even further, the Russian ambassador to this Latin American country told Sputnik.

    MONTEVIDEO (Sputnik) — "I can only characterize the state of Russian-Argentinian relations as excellent," Victor Koronelli said.

    "As for political cooperation, I’d describe it [using] the words ‘extremely constructive and trusting,’" the ambassador said.

    This year, Moscow and Buenos Aires are marking the 130th anniversary since the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

    In April, Argentinian President Cristina Kirchner met with Russia’s Vladimir Putin during her state visit to Moscow. The presidents signed several deals and remarked on their countries' strengthening bilateral relations.
