Foreign ministers Rafael Roncagliolo of Peru and Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo of Spain met Tuesday to discuss future joint efforts in the fight against drugs.
According to the Spanish minister, this will be one of the main topics of discussion during a meeting of interior ministers in Valencia late this year.
The meeting is part of the 22nd Ibero-American Summit of Heads of State and Government, due to be held in Cadiz in November.
"And probably, the topic will be part of the leaders' agenda," he added after meeting his Peruvian counterpart to discuss bilateral, multilateral and international issues.
Garcia-Margallo also said they reviewed the situation in Latin America and stressed the key role that Peru plays in this region, both geographically and politically.
The Spanish minister went on to note that trade relations between the two countries are good, but can be a lot better.
"Spain is the second largest destination for Peruvian exports, only behind Germany," he added.
