Ramtane Lamamra, the foreign minister as well as deputy prime minister of Algeria, visited Moscow March 19. His talks with his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov seemed like a conversation between two old friends who have a lot to reminisce about. However, at the final press conference the Algerian guest passionately describing the changes coming up in his country while the Russian minister remained solemn. Discussing the issues of Algeria, Lavrov maintained his objections to foreign powers intervening in the matters of other countries.
