“The Algerian military is satisfied with the quality of Russian weapons, which has proven itself well in the specific conditions here, namely the desert with its extremely high temperatures and sandstorms,” said Alexander Zolotov, Russian Ambassador to Algeria.
 
Last month, Algeria and Russia commenced a plan to improve bilateral military and economic cooperation.
