Russia wants to strengthen bilateral ties with Uruguay, declared Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov during a visit to Montevideo, where he met with President Tabaré Vázquez and Foreign Minister Reinaldo Gargano. Speaking before the Uruguayan parliament, Lavrov called for greater investment cooperation. Russia could offer Uruguay its know-how in energy management and the construction of gas pipelines, he added. Uruguay, where the headquarters of Mercosur are currently located, invited Russia to the economic bloc’s next summit in December.
