    "Trade between Russia and Algeria has grown <…> consistently for the past years. Only five years ago it stood at just 200 million dollars, now it stands at 1 billion dollars, and we are expecting better figures in the coming years," Allaoua said.

    The Africa Day celebrates the unity of the African countries and commemorates the founding of the Organisation of African Unity, now known as African Union, on May 25, 1963.
