Rossiya Segodnya First Deputy Editor-in-Chief Sergei Kochetkov and ADIAC Secretary-General Ange Pongault signed the memorandum during an online ceremony.
The two countries plan to exchange content in French and take part in each other’s special events.
We are confident that this document will be more than a simple formality. We have received first-hand access to news from the Republic of the Congo and provided our colleagues with access to news from Russia. We also invite ADIAC to take part in the SputnikPro project and the agency’s expert video link-ups, which is especially important ahead of the Russia‒Africa Summit.
This is the fifth document signed with a French-speaking African country in the agency’s portfolio.
