MOSCOW, November 18, /ITAR-TASS/. All conflicts in Africa should be settled by the continent’s countries themselves, presidential special envoy for cooperation with African countries Mikhail Margelov said.
Margelov has met Gunter Nooke, the German chancellor’s special representative in charge of G8 and African Affairs.
“Africa is changing. Although there are many trouble spots in Africa most states are successfully resolving political problems,” Margelov said.
He cited Mali as an example when “the country faced the most serious conflict. Today the presidential elections have been held. The situation is taken under control and Mali can move forward”.
“Russia seeks to settle conflicts in Africa by political means. The states are represented in authoritative international organisations and want to maintain economic cooperation,” Margelov said.
“It is very pleasant to note that the African Union is becoming a more serious and influential organisation,” he said, adding that African countries took part in different forums.
