Western countries have made every effort to sabotage the Russia-Africa summit, said Dmitry Peskov, press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation. According to him, there is practically no country on the African continent that has not experienced pressure from the United States, RIA Novosti reports. The French embassies in Africa and other Western diplomatic missions are also on the alert. Their actions were aimed at preventing African countries from participating in the forum.

The Russian Foreign Ministry previously noted that the United States wanted Africans to oppose Moscow's decision to withdraw from the grain deal.

The adoption of several important documents will be the result of the Russia-Africa summit. The Russian Foreign Ministry hopes that they will create a reliable foundation for work aimed at shaping a new configuration of international relations. It will be based on equality and a multipolar world, there will be no place for "unilateral diktat".
