President Farmajo holds talks with Russian leader

President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo on Wednesday evening had a one-on-one meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The two leaders met for half an hour on the sidelines of the Russia-Africa Summit in Sochi.

Both expressed their commitment to enhancing the relations between the two countries.

In the evening on Wednesday, Putin treated Farmajo and other African Heads of state to a dinner gala.

Speaking to the leaders at the Gala, Putin repeated his message that Russia is open for deeper cooperation with African countries in areas such as trade, mining, infrastructure development, and ICT development among others.

Putin emphasized that the policy of Russia remains that of non-interference in internal affairs, that Africa should be allowed to develop using solutions developed by Africans themselves and that Russian assistance to Africa should be on “no strings attached basis”.

The Gala was a Presidential business dinner organized for continued business talk amongst the leaders.
