MOSCOW (Sputnik) - In early June, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov arrived in the Republic of the Congo for the second time in two years, when he held meetings with the leadership of the country in the Congolese city of Oyo.
President of the Republic of the Congo Denis Sassou Nguesso will travel to Russia next Tuesday and hold a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Ambassador in Moscow David Madouka told Sputnik on Tuesday.
