“Russia's support will be a good thing for Africa”, according to the Mauritian ambassador in Moscow

The Russia-Africa parliamentary conference taking place in Moscow offers good opportunities to discuss how to promote and develop the continent with Russian support, said the Mauritian Ambassador to Russia. A relevant subject, “especially with the new world order”, to also review relations between Africa and Europe.

Africa needs a large number of transformations to which Russia can contribute, estimated the Mauritian ambassador in Russia, Kheswar Jankee, in an interview granted to Sputnik, at the opening of Russia-Africa Parliamentary Conference which is held on March 19 and 20 in Moscow.
It is organized in preparation for the Russia-Africa summit which will take place in Saint Petersburg next July.

The two events allow to address the question of “how can we promote, industrialize and develop Africa”, estimated the ambassador.

“There is everything to review in Africa. I believe that the support of Russia, it will be a good thing for us, especially in terms of social justice, duration, renewal of the law, in terms of promoting democracy in Africa, (which is) in the process of to review in some way the relations that exist between Europe and Africa”, explained Kheswar Jankee.

Snub to the West

These countries meet there to study in particular the modalities of their partnership despite the Western pressure exerted against Africa for its cooperation with Moscow:

“A good number of Africans came just for that, to see in what situation we can collaborate. We can have a win-win situation, we can work together with Russia. I believe the ball is definitely in Russia’s court because they have enormous resources and capabilities to move forward, to promote Africa, the African continent and even Mauritius,” said the ambassador, while adding that his country “has a very balanced approach towards Russia”.

It is also important that this conference be “a good opportunity” to take stock, “especially with the new world order“, he continues.

Russia “is definitely in a global position today to be able to dictate what needs to be done in Africa as well,” stressed the Mauritian ambassador. According to him, his “African friends will have the same” expectations.

Globally, the key topics of the partnership are trade, international transactions, as well as exports and imports, he continues. There are also challenges like promoting employment and developing agriculture with water self-sufficiency, the Ambassador added.

Finally, the participants could enrich the Russian-African parliamentary relations, but also those “between the different political leaders of different countries in Africa”.
