According to an agreement between Russia and Peru, two hundred Peruvian servicemen will study in Russia’s universities.
The agreement was made on the sidelines of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Russia’s Far East, where Russian president met his Peruvian counterpart Ollanta Humala.
“Eighty-nine students from Peru are currently studying in Russia. We plan to organize the training of over 200 servicemen in Russian Defense Ministry universities,” the president said.
Putin also expects new levels of Russia-Peru bilateral relations. He said there are such possible ways of joint work as power industry, fishery, military and technical cooperation, education.
Currently, the most developed sphere of Russia-Peru relations is a trade between two countries. In 2011 it nearly doubled on 2010 to reach $726 million.
The APEC summit took place on September 8-9 in the Russian city of Vladivostok.
