Rusia-Ministerio-Defensa-1
Moscow, Mar 29 (Prensa Latina) The frigate Marshal Shaposhnikov of the Russian Pacific Fleet, which is carrying out an expedition to distant regions, arrived today at the port of Massawa, in Eritrea, a country in northeastern Africa, the Ministry of Defense reported here.

‘On the occasion of the first visit of a Russian ship to Eritrea in modern history, a welcoming ceremony, took place at the pier in which representatives of the local administration and the African country’s Naval Forces participated,’ the note said.

The visit will be extended for several days so that the Russian marines will have time to take part in cultural events, see local tourist sites, and take part in sports tournaments together with Eritrean sailors, the military agency’s note said.
