  • Alexander Novak
    Alexander Novak “We are working on mechanisms to prohibit the use of a price cap instrument, regardless of what level is set, because such interference could further destabilise the market. We will sell oil and petroleum products only to those countries that will work with us under market conditions, even if we have to reduce production a little.” 16 hours ago

    Scot Marciel “Beyond the re-appointment of Kyaw Moe Tun in the UN, Russia is being difficult to work with [in terms of reaching a consensus in the international community to pressure the regime] and is publicly backing the junta. China seems to be consolidating its support for the regime as well. It's different from 2021. They provide tangible support for the junta, whereas those who support the resistance and the anti-coup movement are more rhetorical in their support.” 16 hours ago
  • Chen Gang
    Chen Gang “By now it should be clear to the Chinese leadership that it is unrealistic to hope to eliminate COVID-19 entirely through lockdowns and repeated testing, given the Omicron variant's high transmissibility and the large number of asymptomatic cases. The recent protests themselves have not dented Xi's political authority, but unless it adapts, the government may encounter a growing political backlash against its COVID-19 policy.” 17 hours ago

“In total, two-thirds of the ships sent are directed to Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. The recovery of Ukrainian food exports through the grain corridor had a positive effect on the reduction of prices as in August, after first shipments were completed, wheat prices fell by at least five percent. The Russians' fakes about sending Ukrainian grain only to Europe simply do not correspond to reality.”

“When you look at Russia, it has the first, second and third highest reserves globally of practically everything. From energy to diamonds, to fresh water, to rare earths and other minerals, it's an extremely rich country. And despite its current estrangement from the West, the Kremlin was far from being geopolitically isolated. Russia has some powerful friends, such as China, India, and Iran, and some increasingly powerful acquaintances, such as Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Brazil, and much of Africa. On balance, therefore, I suspect that Russia will prevail.”

“Russia cherishes its strong ties with Latin America, Asia and Africa, and is ready to offer partners and allies the most modern types of weapons - from small arms to armoured vehicles and artillery, combat aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles. Almost all of them have been used more than once in real combat operations. We are talking about high-precision weapons and robotics, about combat systems based on new physical principles. Many of them are years, or maybe decades ahead of their foreign counterparts, and in terms of tactical and technical characteristics they are significantly superior to them. I want to emphasise that Russia stands for the broadest comprehensive development [and] military-technical cooperation. Today in conditions of confidence in the emerging multipolar world, this is especially important. We highly appreciate the fact that our country has many like-minded allies and partners on different continents. These are the states that do not succumb to the so-called hegemon. Their leaders show a real masculine character and do not bend.”

“I understand the sentiment of these regions, because when countries in Africa and Asia have had wars, Europe has sometimes played a one-sided game. The EU has certainly underestimated the fact that the sheer outrage felt within the continent about this war and enmity towards Russia isn't shared by the rest of the world.”

“Africa has become the collateral victim of a distant conflict, that between Russia and Ukraine. By profoundly upsetting the fragile global geopolitical and geostrategic balance, it has also cast a harsh light on the structural fragility of our economies. The most emblematic sign of these fragilities is the food crisis following the climatic disorders, the health crisis of COVID-19, amplified today by the conflict in Ukraine. This crisis is characterised by a shrinking world supply of agricultural products and a soaring inflation of food prices.”

“A new meta-analysis of standardised sero-prevalence study revealed that the true number of infections could be as much as 97 times higher than the number of confirmed reported cases. This suggests that more than two-thirds of all Africans have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus. The focus was very much on testing people who were symptomatic when there were challenges in having access to testing supplies and this resulted in under-representing the true number of people who have been exposed and are infected by the virus.”

“The pandemic is moving into a different phase … We think that we're moving now, especially with the vaccination expected to increase, into what might become a kind of endemic living with the virus. Against the odds, including huge inequities in access to vaccinations, we've weathered the COVID-19 storm with resilience and determination.”

“Rather than limiting itself with the immediate neighbours, Turkey has been reaching out to wider regions including Africa to diversify its strategic engagements. In this regard, Ankara has considered African countries to be equal partners in its foreign policy objectives as well as economic goals. In recent years, however, these countries have increasingly become aware of their unique potential, not only for economic strength but also for diplomatic and military capabilities. Therefore, these countries became more open to new regional and global powers, including Turkey, to increase their engagements to defend their interests.”

“The successful breakthroughs Turkey has experienced in the defence industry in recent years are certainly reflected in its relations with Africa. It was expected to improve defence cooperation with countries such as Somalia, Niger and Ethiopia. Moreover, as seen in Libya, Turkish drones will make great contributions to the peace in the region. It is not difficult to predict that in the new period, Turkey-Africa cooperation will find new key sectors in the military and commercial fields.”

“One-point-three billion people live on the African continent and it is not represented at the Security Council. This is a huge, flagrant injustice. I am still excited and thrilled every time I visit the continent. This summit is a testament to the fact that Turkey is interested in Africa and Turkey's interest in Africa is not a temporary interest, it is a maintained commitment. Our African brothers and sisters are showing they are interested in better cooperation with Turkey.”

“China has been signalling strongly that it wants to shift towards a private sector-to-private sector financing model. China's policy banks have grown increasingly concerned about borrowers' ability to repay loans and grown wary about extending finance. These lenders not only have an obvious financial interest in recovering their money, but they are also part of the Communist Party political architecture in China. Should non-performing loans and defaults continue to increase, Xi [Xi Jinping] could face political consequences at a time when he is consolidating control amid the global pandemic.”

“However, The Gambia seems to have defied the odds of democratic backsliding thanks largely to a proactive citizenry, participative civil society that has taken advantage of the democratic opening, and new leadership. This has led to some unprecedented democratic gains in a short period - achievements that are arguably unmatched by any current transitioning society in Africa.”

“The identification of the Omicron variant in the southern part of Africa confirms the urgency to do more to vaccinate the population of the most fragile countries. It is not enough to donate doses.”

“Worth emphasising this is at super low numbers right now in a region of Africa that is fairly well sampled, however it very very much should be monitored due to that horrific spike profile (would take a guess that this would be worse antigenically than nearly anything else about). A final observation - this variant contains not one, but two furin cleavage site mutations - P681H (seen in Alpha, Mu, some Gamma, B.1.1.318) combined with N679K (seen in C.1.2 amongst others) - this is the first time I've seen two of these mutations in a single variant.”

“Too many times, the countries of Africa have been treated as junior partners - or worse - rather than equal ones. The U.S. firmly believes that it's time to stop treating Africa as a subject of geopolitics - and start treating it as the major geopolitical player it has become.”

“When I started Ilara, I was going into low-income areas of Nairobi and there was no lab. I was Google Mapping for labs and there's no labs. So my immediate entrepreneurial conclusion, well, there is no lab, there should be a lab so let me build labs. But the reality is that you can't just build labs because if you just be labs and there is no one to prescribe tests, you're not going to solve the problem. So we saw that how can we actually bring those labs on the desk, very, very close to the patient? What we are doing is not only that we scout the world for these point-of-care diagnostic technologies, which is evolving very, very fast, in the same way, you know, our iPhones and our phones have evolved in the past 10 years. It's evolving very fast, it's become cheaper and cheaper. So we've identified, we're curating those devices, we bring them into Africa, we finance them. So we place them door-to-door into those nurse-led medical facilities, but with a leasing model to make it affordable to them to have those devices, to be able to deliver better diagnostic and cheaper diagnostics, and obviously to be able to make revenue and to be able to pay us back that leasing fee. And on top of this, we connect those devices with a piece of technology to be able to get the results in a centralized way and communicate them back to the clinician and eventually back to the patient.”

“Regarding U.S.-Chinese competition in Africa, I mean, I don't want to sound almost - well, cynical, almost, about it. But sometimes it's a good thing for you if you're the attractive bride and everybody is offering you wonderful things. So you take what you can from each of them.”

“When they say cut in Africa, what do they want to cut? There's nothing to cut here. African countries are the ones on the receiving end of this problem. It's the bigger emitters that should have the responsibility to cut. We should be sensitive to history.”
