Dear Mr. Minister,
We are glad to welcome you to the Russian Federation.
We have good and long-standing relations, both at the state level and in our personal contacts. We highly appreciate it.
Our ties traditionally cover all areas, including political dialogue, economic interaction, cultural, humanitarian and educational contacts.
We highly appreciate the coordination of our delegations at international platforms, primarily the UN.
Of course, our contacts always include an exchange of assessments and an analysis of the state of affairs on the African continent. In this regard, your visit looks more than timely.
I look forward to useful talks aimed at moving our relations forward in all directions.
