Sergey Aksyonov, self-appointed Head of the Crimean Government, met with Juan Ernesto Vasquez Araya, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Nicaragua to Russia.

During the meeting, the sides ‘discussed the possibility of cooperation between Nicaragua and Crimea’, says the press service of the Crimean Government.

In particular, Juan Ernesto Vasquez Araya said that Nicaraguan students would soon come to Crimea to study.

“We are prepared to discuss the possibility of cooperation with the Crimean Government. Crimea is an important tourist destination for Russia, so I think Nicaraguan products might be in demand in your market. We have also visited the Federal University and discussed the possibility of launching an exchange program for the students and teachers. We have signed a document authorizing arrival of the first group of Nicaraguan students to Crimea next year. I am positive that with your help we will be able to reach common ground and seek out common interests for the development of the regions,” said the Ambassador.

In his turn, Sergey Aksyonov ‘expressed belief that the visit will help the Ambassador get some idea on the potential of the Crimean economy and areas where fruitful and mutually beneficial cooperation is possible,” says the press service.
