Russian Relations with Guinea and Congo Developing Well

Embarking on his sixth tour of the African continent in the past two years, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov arrived at Guinea’s capital Conakry on Monday, for a working visit, to discuss economic and military-technical cooperation with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Guinea, Morissanda Kouyate, as well as President Mamady Doumbouya.
