At a news conference in Lima, Peruvian Foreign Minister Rafael Roncagliolo said this pact will help both countries to develop a common strategy and plan to face this issue.

The document was signed Tuesday by Peruvian Culture Minister Luis Peirano and his Bolivian counterpart, Pablo Groux, who took the opportunity to return to Peru a mummified toddler seized from antiquities traffickers
