Feature Politics President Lungu receives Russia's Federation council chairperson

President Edgar Chagwa Lungu, has held discussions of mutual interest with Russia’s Federation Council Chairperson Her Excellency Mrs Valentina Matviyenko at State House.

During the meeting, the President said the high level visits between Zambia and the Russian Federation such as the visit to Zambia by Mrs Matviyenko is a demonstration of the warm relations that exist between the two countries.

The President said the visit was a build up from bilateral talks with his Russian counterpart President Vladimir Putin which were held on the margins of the 10th BRICS Summit in Johannesburg, in July, 2018, when the two leaders committed to scaling up diplomatic ties between Zambia and Russia in order to strengthen economic cooperation.

And Mrs Matviyenko who paid a courtesy call on the President underscored the need for enhanced cooperation in various sectors between the two countries.

Mrs Matviyenko noted that the two countries have potential to boost trade and cooperation in health, heavy duty industry, agriculture and defence and security sectors.

The Chairperson of the Federation Council of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation Mrs Valentina Matviyenko is in Zambia on a reciprocal visit, following Speaker of the National Assembly, Dr. Patrick Matibini’s visit to Moscow in April, 2018. She is accompanied by senators from the Federation Council and other Government officials.

  1. When we was young we would have just simply reported that uyu ndiye patrick matibini waku russia, like we used to say ati kaunda waku zaire nindani?
    so manda hill yaku russia has come to see how manda hill yatu works?

  2. I wish the key talking points relating to boosting trade are explained to Zambian people.
    We cant afford to keep begging and more borrowing!! Zambia has a lot to offer that other countries.. Hope there was no begging bowl given to Russia.

  3. Excellent. This is timely given my pending high level trip to Moscow to meet with high level secret agents in light of the uncivil gas attacks. We are working with high level partners to gather evidence. Be warned all those involved

  4. Such high level secrete information is never thrown onto the public domain Ba KZ .This can only happen under a banana republic packed with ifi colour like KZ .Zambia has gone to the dogs .

  5. @kaizer Zulu,Russians,especially is well known for using poisonous attacks on their opponents.The only reason you can be going there is to go and obtain more deadly poison from either govt of mafia groups to come and eliminate opponents although this is all hogwash as people with intentions for serious security operations hardly publicise themselves!

  6. Boyi Kaiser you have data… Yesterday you said you hired Russians to clean up “gas” hoax, and here we are looking at some hotty sexxxy woman.

  7. @Nostradamus ”looking at some hotty sexxxy woman” you must be blind.. she looks old to me, look at her crows feet wrinkles ! I wouldn’t want to see her naked in the morning with no make up on. Damn!!!

  8. “Africa will never be independent, Africans believe in Europeans, Americans, and Chinese more than themselves. They don’t trust themselves at all, African technocrats/Engineers aren’t given the platform to practice what they studied instead they hire Chinese to construct roads for themselves.
    A white man will commit a crime in Africa but no action will be taken because the African authorities view us as Demigods, far from the truth. A black man can be abducted in Europe get harassed and even be killed but no African authority can even question. Africans present themselves as weak people with no hope, especially when dealing with Europeans and Americans.
    They are their own enemies. They hate each other and this gives their colonial masters the opportunity to continue exploring their…

  10. Vladimir Putins quote on Africa..
    A white man will co m m i t a crime in Africa but no action will be taken because the African a u t h o r it i e s view us as D e m i g o d s, far from the truth. A black man can be a b d u c t e d in Europe get h a r a s s e d and even be k i l l e d but no African a u th o r i t y can even question. Africans present themselves as w e a k people with no h o p e, especially when dealing with Europeans and Americans.

  11. Vladimir Putins quote on Africa..
    African soil can feed the whole of Europe, America, and Asia but their problem is just one, “THEIR LEADERS”

  12. Vladimir Putins quote on Africa..

    A white man will commit a crime in Africa but no a c t i o n will be taken because the African authorities view us as D e m i g o d s, far from the truth.

  13. PF IS TRYING TO SHOW USA THAT EVEN IF USA RECIPROCATES THE CHASING OF DANIEL FOOTE BY CHASING KAPAMBWE, ZAMBIA CAN STILL DEPEND ON RUSSIA? A RECIPROCAL VISIT IN 2020 WHEN THE OTHER ONE TOOK PLACE IN 2018? THIS IS QUESTIONABLE!
    USA IS A MORE BENEFICIAL ALLY TO ZAMBIA THAN RUSSIA. UNLESS THE PF WANTS TO LEARN PUTINIAN DEMOCRACY OF ABRUPTLY CHANGING THE CONSTITUTION TO SUIT INDIVIDUAL POLITICAL ASPIRATIONS. ON PAPER, ZAMBIA HAS BETTER DEMOCRACY THAN RUSSIA.
