MOSCOW, February 17. /ITAR-TASS/. Problems of the African continent should be solved by Africans themselves and on the basis of balance of interests, international law and support from the international community, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Monday after talks with Eritrean counterpart Osman Saleh Mohammed.
“We have held useful talks, considering the key issues of the international and regional agenda,” Lavrov said. “We have agreed on the supremacy of international law, the central role of the United Nations and the importance of cooperation in addressing global threats and challenges to security.”
“We give special attention to the situation in different African regions, to the south of the Sahara and in the Horn of Africa, including the situation in Somalia, between Sudan and South Sudan and in the African Great Lakes region, alongside relations between Ethiopia and Eritrea,” Lavrov said.
“We would like to help normalise these relations as well as other critical points on the African continent," he added.
