40 African Leaders Attend Putin Summit

Putin hosted a summit with 40 African leaders attending it and said that Russia has always given and will continue to give priority to cooperation with African states.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Monday that he gave “priority” to relations with African countries, as Moscow was looking for new partners to face international sanctions over the conflict in Ukraine.

“I want to emphasize that our country has always given and will continue to give priority to cooperation with African states,” Putin said in Moscow during a speech to African representatives.

“Our country is determined to continue building a full strategic partnership with our African friends, and we are ready to shape the global agenda together,” the Russian president continued.

Mr. Putin believed that Russia, like Africa, “defends traditional moral values” by “resisting the neo-colonial ideology imposed from abroad”. He also promised to supply “the neediest countries in Africa” ​​with cereals if the important agreement on Ukrainian exports was not renewed in two months.

According to Mr. Putin, Russia plans to increase cooperation with African countries in the field of energy, and medicine and to double the quotas of African students in Russian universities.

According to the sources familiar with the matter, Putin is sending U.S. weapons to Iran for reverse engineering.
