The Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov is expected Wednesday in Conakry in the context of bilateral cooperation between Conakry and Moscow kabanews learned from diplomatic sources.
During his stay in Conakry, the Russian diplomat will hold talks first his Guinean counterpart, François Fall Louceiny then with President Alpha Condé, with whom he will discuss several current issues including bilateral cooperation between the two countries. They will eventually address the issue of Rusal in the case of the mining project and Friguia Dian Dian the Russians intend to invest.
The diplomat’s visit comes at a particular socio-political context, dominated by the funeral ceremony of 11 Guinean soldiers who perished in a plane crash Monday near Monrovia, Liberia.
On the political level, the standoff between government and opposition on how to organize elections, continues.
It remains to be seen if diplomatic pressure could bring both sides (government and opposition) a compromise to avoid a new crisis looming on the horizon.
We will return
