MOSCOW, September 2 (Itar-Tass) - A Russian trade mission will be opened in Johannesburg, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said after negotiations with his visiting South African counterpart Maite Nkoana-Mashabane here on Monday.
“I am glad to convey an official note to my South African counterpart in order to fix an intergovernmental agreement to inaugurate a Russian trade mission in Johannesburg at the Russian embassy in South Africa,” the minister said.
