Russia's Sputnik, Cote D'Ivoire's AIP Sign Cooperation Pact
The pact was inked by Sputnik's head of international cooperation, Vasily Pushkov, and AIP's director general Oumou Sana Barry in the Ivorian city of Abidjan last week.
"An equal partnership between the two news agencies will help us change for the best.
It will be a mutually enriching experience exchange," Barry said.
AIP was created in 1961 and is one of the three major state media in the West African nation. Sputnik came into being in 2014. It is a modern news agency and broadcaster with offices in key cities around the world, producing stories in over 30 languages.
