Guinean president proposes strategic partnership to use all cooperation possibilities

NOVO-OGARYOVO. Sept 28 (Interfax) - In negotiations with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Alpha Conde, the President of Guinea, has proposed establishing a strategic partnership between the two countries.

"Our economic cooperation is far from the possibilities that we can really achieve some day. I hope we will go to a new level, cross this line, and increase cooperation to use the opportunities that are available to us," Conde said.

"Therefore, I suggest taking our partnership into the framework of strategic partnership," he said.

The potential for cooperation is huge, but there are some financial difficulties, Conde said. He said he hopes that it will be possible to use all opportunities in this partnership.

Conde said consultations are now being conducted with the Paris Club on the possibility of looking for new sources of funding.

"We hope for Russia's participation in the consultative club's negotiations on relations with the Paris Club and that the Russian Federation will participate in various concessions that are being developed in our country," Conde said.
