West's 'Illegal Sanctions' Bolster Zimbabwean-Russian Cooperation, Minister Tells Sputnik
"Africa for Russia today is one of the most attractive investment centers because of the advantages of the fact that Africa has got some of the natural resources, the most of the natural resources, and also we have good advantage of the youth dividend. So that really gives us an opportunity to work whether it's in mining, whether it's in agriculture, whether it's even in human resources training," the minister noted.
"We have enjoyed very good relationships as a country from Zimbabwe with Russia, because that's historically from the time when the black people of my country were fighting for their independence," Mutsvangwa emphasized. "Zimbabwe was oppressed for a number of years, and we had to take up arms to fight the colonizers. And we are happy, as people from Zimbabwe, that Russia stood with us during that very, very difficult time."
