The event brought together parliamentarians and diplomats from Latin America and the Caribbean on one platform
The first international parliamentary conference Russia-Latin America is concluding its work in the Russian capital. It opened on Friday, 29 September, and will continue until Monday, 2 October, as reported by Prensa Latina, a partner of TV BRICS.
State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin said that more than 200 representatives of the South American continent are taking part, including parliamentarians, public figures and diplomats from Latin America and the Caribbean. They are discussing current issues on the international parliamentary agenda, strengthening cooperation with their Russian counterparts. Many bilateral meetings took place during the event.
The conference included round tables devoted to equal and mutually beneficial economic cooperation, as well as the development of humanitarian ties between Russia and Latin America.
The participants talked about the role of parliamentary diplomacy in building a just multipolar world and addressing security issues.
The last day of the event will close with a plenary session on the theme “Russia and Latin America: cooperation for a just world for all”, which will be held in the State Duma.
Earlier, Volodin noted that more and more countries are choosing in favour of an independent policy, adopting a development model based on the protection of their national interests, and seeing Russia as a reliable partner with whom relations can be built on the basis of equality and mutual respect.
