MOSCOW, April 08. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergei Lavrov and visiting Angolan counterpart Georges Rebelo Chicoti will meet in the Russian capital on Tuesday to discuss a reform of the UN Security Council, settlement of crises in Africa and bilateral relations.
The ministers will debate cooperation on international scene and will analyze progress of talks on several intergovernmental and interdepartmental agreements. Lavrov and Chicoti will discuss key issues of global politics, in particular, the reform of the United Nations Organization and the UN Security Council, disarmament issues, modern challenges and threats, and will focus on the current situation in the Middle East and North Africa.
“Talks will centre on problems of African continent, including settlement of crisis situations, peacekeeping and ensuring of sustainable socio-economic development of African countries,” the Russian foreign diplomatic agency noted.
In recent years, trade and economic ties between Russia and Angola have been broadening; the number of joint projects has been growing. “Cooperation spreads on new spheres, including highly technological fields. Russian business circles show a growing interest in entering a sizable and promising market in Angola,” the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated.
The foreign ministers will discuss the scope of cooperation with a focus on promotion of new joint projects and practical implementation of current large-scale bilateral projects in energy, geological prospecting and mining, communications and telecommunications, new technologies, fisheries, education, banking and other spheres.
Lavrov and Chicoti will sign a memorandum on mutual understanding and political consultations between the foreign ministries of the two countries.
Moscow “values friendly relations with Angola which is our long-standing and reliable partner on African continent and praises highly the level of mutual understanding attained in current global and regional agenda,” the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs noted.
“We hope that a working visit of the Angolan minister of foreign affairs will promote further expansion of cooperation on international scene and will give a fresh impetus to development of bilateral cooperation in political, trade and economic, scientific, technical and other spheres,” the Russian ministry said.
