The Peruvian president will arrive in La Paz on Saturday to preside and participate with his Bolivian counterpart in a binational cabinet meeting: More than 107 bilateral commitments will be undertaken on different topics such as those related to the Mauri River and Lake Titicaca.
Both freshwater reservoirs are now part of the common border between both countries, which, when they achieved their independence in the 19th century, were a single State.
"President Pedro Castillo and ministers of state will participate in the Presidential Meeting and VI Bolivia-Peru Binational Ministerial Cabinet in La Paz. Both countries will promote, through political dialogue, the bilateral agenda for the benefit of our peoples."
Bolivia's Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs, Eva Chuquimia, confirmed the agenda and the meeting to take place at the Casa Grande del Pueblo, the seat of the Bolivian executive, as a corollary of the technical work that began in La Paz on different common areas.
According to Chuquimia, they are working on four areas comprising 18 negotiating tables, which translates into 107 commitments of different types to benefit the populations of both countries.
The Peruvian president will sign on Saturday, together with his Bolivian counterpart, the final memorandums of the binational agenda.
