Botswana–Russia relations (Russian: Российско-ботсванские отношения) date back to 6 March 1970 when Botswana and the Soviet Union established diplomatic relations.
The present-day relations between the two countries are described as friendly and long standing.
According to the minister of Foreign Affairs, Russia was one of the first countries to establish full diplomatic relations with Botswana.
Famous quotes containing the word relations:
“The land is the appointed remedy for whatever is false and fantastic in our culture. The continent we inhabit is to be physic and food for our mind, as well as our body. The land, with its tranquilizing, sanative influences, is to repair the errors of a scholastic and traditional education, and bring us to just relations with men and things.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
