Putin: “Africa wakes up”

Russia has the opportunity to build partnerships not only with China and India, but also with Latin America, as well as Africa, which “is still sleeping, but already wakes up,” said Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“The world is large, diverse. Now they said about China, about India. Why only China and India? Even Latin America. Yes, Africa is still sleeping today, but it wakes up, 1.5 billion people live there there . And all Southeast Asia? It is impossible to embrace such a country as Russia from the side, ”Putin said at a meeting with young entrepreneurs on Thursday.
