The governments of Peru and Armenia plan to sign an agreement on mutual visa exemption for holders of diplomatic passports.

According to Armenpress, the agreement aims at developing and strengthening friendly and cooperative relations between the two countries.

The draft of the agreement was introduced to the agenda of the March 27 session of the Government of the Republic of Armenia.

"The agreement will contribute to the promotion of mutual visits of citizens bearing diplomatic passports: the lack of diplomatic representations between the two countries complicate the visa acquisition," justification of the draft says.

Last year, Peru reached similar agreements with Azerbaijan, Mongolia and Kuwait.

In January 2014, Peruvian Foreign Minister Eda Rivas and her Armenian counterpart Edward Nalbandian met in Lima to discuss the prospect of a free trade agreement between the two countries.
