Presidents Putin and Tebboune are expected to discuss the situation in the Middle East and the Sahel region.

On Tuesday, Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune set off for Russia, where he will undertake a two-day visit and meet with President Vladimir Putin, with whom he will sign an agreement to enhance the strategic partnership between their countries.

Besides signing this strengthened strategic partnership, both leaders will discuss international issues, including the situation in the Middle East, the Sahel region, as well as cooperation in the energy market within the framework of OPEC+.

Tebboune will also visit the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF), which is held this year from June 14 to 17, under the slogan "Sovereign Development as the Basis of a Just World: Joining Forces for Future Generations."

Due to the good economic relationship that Russia and Algeria maintain, Putin also invited Tebboune to return to his country in July, when the Russia-Africa Summit will be held.

Russia is Algeria's most important military ally and its main supplier of weapons and military systems. The relationship between these countries has been further strengthened with the arrival of Algerian President Tebboune to power in 2019.

The last time Putin met with Tebboune was in January 2020 at an international conference on Libya in Berlin. Since then, they have repeatedly spoken on the phone. Among other topics, they discussed the situation in Ukraine and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Tebboune and Putin confirmed their intention to continue bilateral coordination within the OPEC+ format in order to ensure stability in global energy markets.
