The official visit Italy's Prime Minister Matteo Renzi pays to Peru serves to strengthen even more the bilateral relations existing between both nations, Peru's Prime Minister Pedro Cateriano affirmed.

“The visit proves the excellent relations [existing] between Peru and the Republic of Italy,” the Peruvian official told.

On Sunday Renzi arrived in Lima for a two-day visit. Upon arrival at Lima’s Grupo Aereo Nr.8 Air Force Base, the Italian dignatary was welcomed by Cateriano.

They held an audience. At the gathering, both politicians discussed about trade, mutual investments and financial cooperation, among other topics.

Likewise, the Prime Ministers traveled to Cusco, where they toured around the famous Inca citadel of Machu Picchu.

On Monday, Renzi will meet with President Ollanta Humala. On Tuesday, he will depart for Colombia.

It must be noted this is the first visit of an Italian Prime Minister, since the both nations established diplomatic relations in 1874.

Renzi is joined by Deputy Ministers of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Mario Giro and Economic Development Carlos Calenda, among businessmen.
