    Russia and Peru signed a cooperation agreement between the two capitals for the first time in the history of bilateral diplomatic relations.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Moscow and Lima authorities signed a program of cooperation between the two capitals for the first time in the history of bilateral diplomatic relations between Russia and Peru, a press service of the Department for External Economic and International Relations of Moscow Government said on Thursday.

    The agreement was signed in Peru by Sergei Cheremin, the head of the Department for External Economic and International Relations of Moscow Government, and Deputy Mayor of Lima Patricia Juarez.

    "We expect that this agreement will provide an impetus for a further development of sustainable economic and cultural ties between Moscow and Lima, as well as create a solid foundation of friendship and mutual understanding," Cheremin said.

    According to Juarez, there is already a series of events in Moscow and Lima planned for 2018.

    "We have already agreed with Mr. Cheremin on a specific plan of action, even set out a number of events for 2018," Juarez said.
