Peru Cuts Arms Orders

MOSCOW -- Peru will continue buying spare parts from Russia for its Soviet and Russian-made weapons, Peruvian Foreign Minister Fernando de Trazegnies said during a visit to Moscow on Wednesday.

Peru values the quality of its Soviet and Russian equipment, de Trazegnies said, adding that he had "lots of chances to be convinced of that" after traveling across Peru in Russian-made helicopters, Itar-Tass said.

But de Trazegnies said he hoped Peru and Russia could focus on civilian ties now that Lima has cut its military purchases with the end of a long-standing border dispute with Ecuador.
