Crimea Interested in Economic Ties with Latin America
Simferopol, Apr 20 (Prensa Latina) Russia and the Crimea, in particular, are interested in multilateral cooperation with Latin America, said Georgi Muradov, deputy prime minister of the government and permanent representative of the Russian president in the aforementioned peninsula.
Delegations from more than 45 countries, including some from Latin America, such as Brazil, which came with representatives from the popular diplomacy line, Nicaragua and Venezuela, are participating in the 3rd International Economic Forum in Yalta, Muradov told Prensa Latina.
'But everything in the forum is aimed at forming relations in different spheres among the states of Latin America and Crimea,' he stressed.
'This is not a one-way street, as it is interesting, both for them and for Russia and in particular for the Crimea,' he highlighted.
'In the case of Italy, with 50 delegates in the forum, they are interested in cooperating in wine production, processing of agricultural products, navigation and development of coastal territories, among others,' he stressed.
Referring to the influence of Western and Ukrainian sanctions in the Crimea, he considered that it actually constitutes a blockade.
The sessions of the economic forum in this peninsula will be extended until noon next Saturday with the participation of about 1,500 delegates and about 400 journalists.
