MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 23rd October, 2021) Bolivian President Luis Arce is highly likely to pay an official visit to Russia next year, Bolivian Foreign Minister Rogelio Mayta told Sputnik on Saturday.
"Luis Arce wants to visit Russia in the context of our relations; this is the country we want to strengthen our ties with... (There is) a very high likelihood (of Arce's visit to Moscow in 2022 exists)" Mayta said.
The Bolivian foreign minister noted that the bilateral relations have been rather positive throughout this year. Talks between the presidents and the foreign ministers have taken place, and the countries have an extensive common agenda.
