Sergey Lavrov, Russia's Foreign Minister, has arrived in Angola on Tuesday evening, where he was welcomed by Tete Antonio, his counterpart from the Southern African country. The main part of the program of the visit is scheduled for Wednesday.
This is the third leg of Lavrov's African tour, which started in South Africa. There, the minister met with his South African colleague Naledi Pandor as well as President Cyril Ramaphosa.
Later Lavrov arrived in the small Southern African kingdom Eswatini. In the local executive capital Mbabane, he held talks with members of the country's cabinet and together with the kingdom's foreign minister Thuli Dladla signed an agreement on visa-free travel between Russia and Eswatini for holders of diplomatic passports.
Lavrov made his previous African tour in summer 2022, when he travelled to Republic of the Congo, Uganda, Ethiopia and Egypt.
