ALGIERS, Jan. 31 (Xinhua) -- Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune will pay a state visit to Russia in May at the invitation of his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, the Algerian presidency said in a statement on Tuesday.

This came as Tebboune and Putin held a telephone conversation to discuss "ways of boosting bilateral partnership, including the sector of energy," it said.

Tebboune was forced to postpone his official visit to Russia scheduled initially in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The two presidents also discussed the forthcoming meeting of the Algerian-Russian Joint Commission which is to be held this year, said the statement.
