Indonesian President Visits Mozambique

Indonesian President Joko Widodo will visit Mozambique as part of a trip to Africa to take part in the summit of the BRICS bloc of emerging economies.

According to the Borneo Bulletin portal, in addition to Mozambique, the Indonesian statesman will visit Kenya and Tanzania, with the aim of strengthening bilateral co-operation between the countries.

“Tanzania and Kenya opened embassies in Jakarta last year, while Mozambique is the first African country to have signed a preferential trade agreement with Indonesia,” revealed the website.

The summit of the BRICS bloc – made up of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa – is scheduled for 22-24 August in Johannesburg.

China, Brazil, India and South Africa will be represented by their respective heads of state at the summit. Russia, which is also a member of the bloc, will have Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov as its representative.

Russian leader Vladimir Putin, who is under an international arrest warrant issued by the International Criminal Court, to which South Africa is a signatory, decided last month not to take part.

The BRICS have gained renewed importance in the context of the imposition of sanctions against Russia, aimed at isolating the country from international trade, following the invasion of Ukraine.
