MOSCOW, March 21. /TASS/. On March 22, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and his counterpart from the Democratic Republic of the Congo Leonard She Okitundu will hold talks to discuss the ways to resolve crises in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and other hotspots in Africa as well as in the Middle East, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
