SHARM EL-SHEIKH, Egypt (Sputnik) - The fact that the majority of supplies under the grain deal have gone to Europe instead of Africa is a manifestation of "hypocrisy," Foreign Minister of the Republic of the Congo Jean-Claude Gakosso told Sputnik.
"We have found out that... the majority of ships transporting Ukrainian wheat have been heading to the European ports, and not to the ports of countries where, as they have said, a catastrophe will happen... There is a lot of hypocrisy in our world," Congolese Foreign Minister Jean-Claude Gakosso said.
At the same time, talks about the fact that Africans will die of hunger is an example of propaganda, the Congolese FM added. Gakosso welcomed the grain deal, but urged the West not to dramatize the problems of the continent.

Russian Military Equipment

Gakosso also pointed out, while speaking to Sputnik, that the Republic of the Congo is interested in acquiring military equipment from Russia.
"Of course!" Gakosso said, when asked whether the country was interested in purchasing Russian military equipment.

The Congolese foreign minister added that military cooperation with Moscow has been a long tradition of the Republic of the Congo.
