The 2nd Russia-Africa summit will take place in a year, TASS reports. It is scheduled for next summer. Preparations for the forum were discussed during the meeting by Special Representative of the President of the Russian Federation for the Middle East and Africa, Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov and Ambassador of Senegal to Russia Jean-Baptiste Thiatti Tin.

 Moscow and Dakar have a common spirit aimed at developing a dialogue in the political sphere, the parties noted. They consider it necessary to coordinate their principled positions in the UN and other international fora.

Earlier, Moscow and its African partners began preparations for the 2nd Russia-Africa summit. According to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, the focus is on bringing economic players to each other's markets and their participation in major infrastructure projects. Sergei Lavrov is sure that the 2nd summit would play an important role in expanding economic cooperation between Russia and Africa and in resolving other issues.

The key vectors for the development of cooperation with African countries were identified back in 2019, at the first meeting. Among them are political dialogue, economic cooperation, and interaction in the investment sphere, as well as humanitarian and educational ties.
