President of Russia Vladimir Putin: Mr President, colleagues,
We are happy to welcome you to Russia, here in the Far East, in Vladivostok.
I know that you have visited other Russian cities – I believe you went to Kazan and Irkutsk. I hope that this will not be your last visit to Russia, especially since we have much work to do together.
Unfortunately, our trade turnover is lower than we might like, but nevertheless, last year, we observed measurable growth. There are interesting potential areas for collaboration, including energy, fishing, military technical cooperation and education.
About 89 Peruvian students study at our universities, and we have agreed on the training for over two hundred service members at the Russian Defence Ministry’s military schools and academies.
Relations between our nations have deep roots and are currently based on the agreement of 2006.
Mr President, we are very happy to see you.
President of The Republic of Peru Ollanta Humala (retranslated): Mr President,
For my part, I would like to congratulate you on your inauguration.
It is a great honour and a pleasure for us to be present here at this summit, to strengthen and deepen our mutual relations. And we have the opportunity to take the relations between our two nations to a qualitatively new level.
For our part, we have a certain vision of our future cooperation. And today, we feel it is possible to develop collaboration in various areas, strengthening our ties of friendship and cooperation.
