    Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Uruguayan counterpart Tabare Vazquez are expected to discuss counterterrorism efforts at a bilateral meeting on February 16, Russia's Ambassador to Uruguay Alexei Labetskiy told Sputnik on Friday.

    MONTEVIDEO (Sputnik) — He said that Montevideo's efforts in the sphere were not of a symbolic nature, adding that the anti-terror fight was the central issue of the international agenda.

    "Uruguay plays an important role in the process [of anti-terror struggle], because it shows an ability of a state to solve the problems related to the escalation of extremism," Labetskiy said.

    Russia and Uruguay established diplomatic relations in 1857. The two countries cooperate in a number of spheres, including agriculture and chemical industry.
