    Bolivia will contribute to deepening of relations between the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) and Russia, Foreign Minister David Choquehuanca told Sputnik Radio.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Choquehuanca is currently on an international tour, and held a meeting with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov in Moscow on April 12.

    "We did not only discuss the Russia-Bolivia relations, bust also CELAC-Russia. It is important for the CELAC members to consider these relations, consolidate mechanisms of coordination to jointly bring forward proposals, both in the United Nations and in other platforms," Choquehuanca said, calling on Russia and CELAC to work together.

    In December, Lavrov met with heads of the diplomatic missions of the CELAC, having signed the agreement on the establishment of a permanent mechanism for political dialogue, within the framework of the 70th session of the UN General Assembly in New York three months prior.

    The so-called Russia — CELAC Mechanism was launched to promote political dialogue on the establishment of a transparent and equal world order based on international law and the provisions of the UN Charter. The agreement is also focused on strengthening mutual cooperation to assist the least developed countries in the region.
