Bilateral meetings mark Serguei Lavrov's working visit to Angola

The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia, Serguei Lavrov starts this Wednesday a working visit to Angola, where he arrived Tuesday night, to meet his counterpart, Téte António, and the President, João Lourenço.


The head of Russian diplomacy, accompanied by his delegation, will meet the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Téte António, in the morning, before proceeding to an audience with the head of State, João Lourenço.

According to the distributed program, at 12:30 pm, the Russian minister visits the Memorial Dr. António Agostinho Neto, as well as the tomb of former Angolan President José Eduardo dos Santos, who died on 8 July last year.

Lavrov will soon follow for a guided tour of the National Museum of Military History and will stop by the Embassy School of the Russian Federation before lunch.

The diplomat returns to Moscow on Thursday morning.

The working visit of the head of Foreign Affairs takes place at a time when Angola, after taking a neutral position on the war in Ukraine, abstaining from voting on a United Nations resolution condemning the Russian invasion, in March, joined in October to most countries that condemned the annexation of Ukrainian territories by Russia.

Angola has been repositioning itself in recent months in terms of foreign policy, moving closer to the United States of America and the European Union, and distancing itself from Russia.
