The Algerian Ministry of Defense issued an announcement on the 19th that a Russian naval fleet arrived at the port of Algiers on the 18th for a three-day technical stay.
It is reported that the fleet consists of a frigate, a tugboat and a fuel supply ship.
The visit of the Russian fleet is part of the military cooperation between Algeria and Russia, with the aim of strengthening naval technology exchanges between the two countries.
On the same day, the commander of the Russian fleet also visited the Algerian Naval Command.
In recent years, Algeria’s cooperation with Russia in various fields has deepened.
Previously, it was reported that Algeria and Russia signed a contract to buy 14 Russian-made Su-57 fighters, and Afghanistan is expected to become the first country outside Russia to have a fifth-generation fighter model.
In addition, the two countries have also cooperated closely in responding to the COVID-19 epidemic.
Algeria has approved the use of the Russian vaccine, and the two countries have also negotiated the possibility of producing the vaccine in Algeria.
