Russia’s Lavrov in Angola to seek international support

The Kremlin’s top diplomat slammed the West and praised Angola’s “balanced position” on international affairs on Wednesday as he pursued an African tour aimed at drumming support for Russia.

Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, on his second visit to Africa in six months, held talks with President Joao Lourenco and his Angolan counterpart Tete Antonio.

His latest trip coincides with that of U.S Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, and comes a month after President Joe Biden hosted African leaders at the U.S-Africa summit in Washington.

Speaking after talks with Lourenco, Lavrov pledged Russia’s mutual firm commitment to development in all areas with Angola. He arrived in Angola after visiting Eswatini and South Africa where he also received warm welcome.
