Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has said Moscow supports Ethiopia’s efforts to stabilise its internal political situation in remarks that sought to draw a contrast with what he presented as meddling by the West.
Lavrov was in Addis Ababa on Wednesday wrapping up a four-nation African tour aimed at drumming up support for Moscow at a time of confrontation with Western powers over the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Most African nations, mindful of economic interests and historical ties with both Russia and the West, have declined to take sides over Ukraine.
