MOSCOW, February 29. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov is heading to Algeria on Monday to discuss energy industry issues and the situation in the Middle East and North Africa, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
Lavrov is to meet with President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal and Foreign Minister Ramtane Lamamra.
The sides will consider ways out of the old regional conflicts, including the Arab-Israeli problem, in line with the UN decisions and international law principles. The agenda also includes problems of new challenges and threats, first and foremost the fight against terrorism and transnational organized crime, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
The Russian-Algerian trade last year totaled nearly $2 billion, growing by 120% on 2014.
The sides are to discuss increasing interaction in the energy sphere, infrastructure facilities construction and high tech.
