Russian President Vladimir Putin hosted the President of Uruguay, Tabare Vazquez, in Moscow on Thursday, where they penned an action plan for strengthening the cooperation between both countries.

Addressing journalists following the signing of the plan, Putin said, "Uruguay is a reliable partner of Russia in Latin America. This year we are celebrating an important date, the 160th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations. The general intention to develop bilateral relations was confirmed in a statement signed just now." Putin added that the Uruguayan delegation were offered the possibility of purchasing Sukhoi Superjets and MS-21s.

The Russian leader stated that both countries shared 'close or coinciding' views on several international issues, commenting "This allows us to effectively cooperate at the UN, particularly in the Security Council."

Vazquez noted, "Above all, we have consolidated and diversified our ties with Russia, and that has a strategic fundamental importance for our small country. Within this framework, together with Mr. President of Russia, we did a comprehensive review of our bilateral agenda, which includes diverse areas of collaboration in the political, economic and cultural areas."

"All of these coinciding points, consensus and bilateral initiatives have been reflected in the action plan which we adopted during the present official visit, whose implementation will set the agenda between both countries for the future. It is a real kick, talking about kicking, next year Russia will host the Football World Cup. I hope we can watch together a final between Russia and Uruguay," concluded Vazquez.

Apart from the action plan, a number of deals were also signed before the press conference, including one on cooperation in trade and defence, as well as a memorandum of understanding between the two country's Foreign Ministries.
