Paraguay Foreign Minister at MGIMO

17 October 2016

October 17th, MGIMO Rector Anatoly Torkunov welcomed the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Paraguay Eladio Loizaga at the University.

Anatoly Torkunov related to the guest of honor the history of MGIMO university and its international outlook. The University boasts numerous dual master degrees and student exchange programs with major foreign universities. The parties mulled over the opportunities of expanding cooperation in education between Russia and Paraguay.

Paraguay this year was able to fully make use of the quota (20 places) for the training of students provided by the Russian side. The visa-free regime which was implemented between the two countries in 2014 has considerably facilitated bilateral cultural exchanges.

The Minister’s visit to MGIMO was held in the framework of his business trip to Russia at the invitation of Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. The visiting delegation comprised the Ambassador of Paraguay in Russia, Ramon Diaz and other senior members of Paraguay’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
