MOZAMBIAN PRIME MINISTER MEETS RUSSIAN COUNTERPART

MOSCOW, July 28- Mozambican Prime Minister Alberto Vaquina has held talks in Moscow with his Russian counterpart, Dmitri Medvedev, during the course of his current official visit to Russia.

Vaquina told journalists after the meeting Saturday that the discussions focused on the friendly relations between the two countries. Vaquina said the special relationship between Mozambique and Russia was based on the support given by Moscow to Mozambicans when they were fighting for the country’s independence from Portugal.

He added that the meeting also covered possible assistance which Russia could give in the management of natural resources such as coal and gas in Mozambique.

Later Saturday, the Prime Minister met members of the Mozambican community in Russia, most them from among the 280 Mozambicans studying in Russia. Most of the students are studying medicine, computer science, agriculture or electronics.
