ALGIERS, February 12 (Itar-Tass) – Russia and Algeria have reaffirmed their common focus on strengthening cooperation at all levels, RF Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Monday after a meeting with Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika.
“We confirmed our common focus on strengthening cooperation at all levels, including the political dialogue and military-technical cooperation, cultural and humanitarian cooperation, on the coordination of our actions in the international arena, including on the problems of the African continent,” said the Russian minister.
“Algeria is one of our leading partners in Africa,” Lavrov continued. “The volume of mutual trade turnover is permanently growing. We link more serious hopes with the forthcoming session of the intergovernmental commission on trade and economic cooperation.” “Russia and Algeria this year are closely cooperating in the sphere of military technology and in the humanitarian, cultural, scientific and educational exchanges,” he added. “We have agreed to promote all of these spheres,” the Russian foreign minister said.
“During the reception given by the president of Algeria we confirmed full coincidence of our views on how to promote the reform of the international system, particularly in terms of support for the rule of law, the central role of the UN and its Security Council, the need to settle conflicts exclusively by diplomatic means, without interference in the internal affairs of sovereign states,” Lavrov stated.
