Russian deputy navy commander Vladimir Kasatonov leads a delegation visiting the Eritrean port city of Massawa for bilateral discussions.

They were greeted by senior Eritrean military officials, including army chief Philipos Woldeyohannes.

This visit coincides with the 30th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the two nations.

The agenda includes talks on mutual interests, as reported by Eritrean state television.

Additionally, the crew of the Russian warship previously docked in Massawa engaged in cultural exchanges and a friendly football match with the Eritrean navy team.

Eritrea’s diplomatic support for Russia during the Ukraine conflict, demonstrated by voting against resolutions condemning the invasion, may add significance to these discussions.
