In particular, it was stressed that Russian military personnel take every possible measure to safely evacuate foreign citizens.

The leaders reaffirmed that it was important to consistently implement the agreements reached at the first Russia-Africa Summit in Sochi in 2019 and further develop diverse ties between Russia and Africa.
