The president of Bolivia, Luis Arce, spoke in New York City Thursday about issues of bilateral interest such as energy, support in technology and healthcare with the foreign minister of Russia, Sergei Lavrov.
"We held a meeting with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the brother country Russia," said the president through the social network Twitter, in whose message he asserted that the two nations have several complementary objectives.
"We will continue working together," assured the head of state, who arrived the day before in New York, United States, to participate in the 76th General Assembly of the United Nations (UN).
As part of his official agenda, Arce had previously held a meeting with the president of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), Mauricio Claver-Carone, in which they discussed various issues and financial support mechanisms in favor of Bolivia.
