MOSCOW, May 26. /ITAR-TASS/. Stabilization in South Sudan is indispensable for expanding trade and economic relations between the two countries, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
“We hope to discuss the state of and prospects for relations,” Lavrov said at talks with South Sudanese counterpart Barnaba Benjamin on Monday.
“We’re satisfied with the level of political dialogue and cooperation within the UN where both countries have common positions,” he said. “On the basis of close partnership, we seek to intensify trade, economic and investment relations,” Lavrov said.
Russian companies show interest in South Sudan and some of them have started implementing projects there, he said.
Lavrov called for continuing efforts to reach stabilization in South Sudan. “Russia is confident that African problems should be solved by Africans themselves,” Lavrov said. “The African Union showed its readiness to contribute to resolving these issues. This deserves support,” he said. “Russia, as a permanent member of the UN Security Council, will continue its contribution to settling problems on the African continent,” Lavrov noted.
Barnaba Benjamin expressed hope that the visit would promote the political dialogue and help attract investments.
