Bolivian, Russian Leaders Meet in Moscow

MOSCOW -- The presidents of Russia, Dmitri Medvedev, and of Bolivia, Evo Morales, signed here Monday a joint political statement reflecting their shared positions on a number of international issues.

"Among the various documents signed, the joint declaration is of particular importance. It reflects the common view of our countries on a number of current international issues, from questions on how to guarantee global security to climate problems," Medvedev said.

At a joint press conference with his Bolivian counterpart, the Russian president described Bolivia as "a partner with prospects," with which his country is keeping up an "in-depth political dialogue."

For his part, Morales described his visit to Russia, the first by the Bolivian president, as an "unprecedented and singular occasion."

The Bolivian president thanked Medvedev for his hospitality, while stressing the "spirit of integration" of Russia and all Latin America.

Officials from the two countries also signed several cooperation pacts in the military and civil defense fields and in the war on drugs.

The Bolivian president is the fourth Latin American head of state to visit Moscow in little more than two months.

Previously at the Kremlin were Argentine President Cristina Fernandez, Nicaraguan head of state Daniel Ortega and the president of Cuba, Raul Castro.

Scheduled for next April is the visit of Chilean President Michelle Bachelet.
