Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov thanked his Algerian counterpart Ramtane Lamamra for their work together on the Syrian ceasefire agreement during a press conference in Algiers, Monday.

"We are grateful for the strong support of our Algerian friends for those agreements which have been achieved within the framework of the International Syria Support Group, co-chaired by Russia and the United States," Lavrov stated. "We share the same opinion that all crises and conflicts must be solved in accordance with the principles of international law in the UN Charter while respecting the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all countries, their right to decide their own destiny without foreign intervention," the Russian diplomat added.

Lamamra stressed that both Russia and Algeria have "achieved a lot in terms of building this strategic cooperation in different fields." "We see the current bilateral relations as positive, convenient, and naturally open to improvement, deepening and expanding," he noted.

Earlier on Monday before holding closed door-discussions, both ministers held a protocol meeting, planting an olive tree outside the foreign ministry building.
