Africa: Russia will open embassies in these three countries

Russia has decided to extend its tentacles into Africa by opening embassies and reorienting its foreign policy.

The country led by Vladimir Putin is currently preparing to set up permanent diplomatic missions in three African countries.

These are Sierra Leone, Niger and South Sudan.

The announcement was made by the head of Russian diplomacy, Sergei Lavrov.

“Today, we are preparing the opening of permanent diplomatic missions in Sierra Leone, Niger and South Sudan,” he said during a meeting with foreign diplomats on the occasion of the Day. of Africa.

“We are ready, in the current conditions, to help the countries of the continent to strengthen their sovereignty, to resolve pressing socio-economic problems, to defend the legitimate and equal place of Africa in the modern world, including the process reform of the United Nations Security Council,” suggested the head of Russian diplomacy.

According to him, the fight against neocolonial practices is at the forefront today. “The methods of the West have changed, but the essence of its policy towards African countries has remained the same: to submit everyone to its will, to live at the expense of others, using forms of exploitation more sophisticated within the framework of the so-called rules-based order,” the minister underlined.

Russia attaches particular importance to strengthening friendly relations with African partners, with the countries united by the aspiration to build a fair multipolar world order. This was stated by Russian President Vladimir Putin in his congratulatory telegram on Africa Day.

“Russia attaches particular importance to strengthening friendly relations with its African partners. We are united by the aspiration to build a just multipolar world order, based on real equality and the primacy of international law, free from all forms of discrimination, diktat and sanctions pressure,” we can read in the text of the telegram published on the Kremlin website.

The President noted that the holding of the second Russia-Africa summit in St. Petersburg last year created the necessary conditions for the establishment of fruitful and mutually beneficial cooperation in various fields. “I am convinced that the coherent implementation of the plans and agreements concluded at the end of this important multilateral meeting serves our common interests and ensures stability and security on the African continent,” underlined Vladimir Putin.

He drew attention to the fact that African countries had achieved recognized successes in the economic and social fields and were “playing an increasingly important role in addressing pressing issues on the international agenda.”

The Russian president noted that within the framework of the African Union and a number of subregional structures, constructive interaction is developing, mechanisms for collective response to local conflicts and crisis situations are being established and integration processes were constantly encouraged.

“Please accept my most sincere congratulations on the occasion of Africa Day, a holiday that symbolizes the victory of the people of your continent over colonialism, their aspiration for freedom, peace and prosperity,” added the president.
