Opening remarks and answers to media questions by the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at a joint press conference after a meeting with the Chairperson of the African Union Commission Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, Addis-Ababa, 17 September 2014

    
 
 

I’m very pleased with the promising talks we had on bilateral issues in the Ethiopian capital, Addis-Ababa, with Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn and Foreign Minister Tedros Adhanom as well as with the talks at the African Union headquarters with the Chairperson of the AU Commission Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma.

Relations between Russia and the African Union are based on decades of friendship, mutual respect and solidarity. Russia supported the liberation of the African countries from their colonial dependence, rendered them practical assistance in building their states and strengthening their sovereignty at a time when this was not popular with many Western politicians. Today these long-standing traditions of friendship and solidarity form the basis of our relations and our very impressive plans.   Full story Full Story

We had a very important meeting with the Prime Minister of Ethiopia Hailemariam Desalegn. And together with my colleague and friend, the Foreign Minister of Ethiopia Tedros Adhanom, we presented the ideas for further developing our bilateral relationship and our cooperation on international issues.

On the bilateral front the Intergovernmental Commission on Economic, Trade and Scientific Cooperation is working well. They met last July, and agreed on quite a number of important directions where they will be following up together with quite a number of Russian and Ethiopian economic partners, including sectors of energy, mineral recourses and others. We also agreed that the draft agreements should be expedited on investment protection and some other things, including on issues related to military technical cooperation, which is a very important element of Russian-Ethiopian partnership.  Full story Full Story

Сomment by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on the results of negotiations with President Robert Mugabe of the Republic of Zimbabwe, Harare, 16 September 2014

    
 
 

We had a very good meeting with President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe and focused on the understandings that were reached yesterday at a meeting of the Intergovernmental Russia-Zimbabwe Commission on Economic, Trade, Research and Technology Cooperation, co-chaired by Russian Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov, as well as on the talks with the Zimbabwe Foreign Minister Simbarashe Simbanenduku Mumbengegwi, held earlier today.

Russia and Zimbabwe have maintained long-standing strong and friendly ties. We have supported Zimbabwe at all stages of its independent development and we continue to support each other in the present-day situation, where highly important and controversial events are happening internationally. Our friends in Zimbabwe as well as Russia’s leaders are confident that it is necessary to look for any solution in today’s world that is based on international law and respect for the UN Charter and the role of the UN Security Council, while using only peaceful means and avoiding unilateral, let alone strong-arm or coercive, actions. Where the prospects for our bilateral relations are concerned, understandings have been reached during these two days, which will make it possible to bring these to a qualitatively new level. We are signing the Agreement between the Government of the Russian Federation and the Government of the Republic of Zimbabwe on Cooperation in Implementing the Darwendale Comprehensive Development Project. Darwendale is a platinum ore deposit that will be jointly used by businesses from both countries.   Full story Full Story
