The Ambassador in Brussels, Carmelo Nvono-Nca, is currently on an important diplomatic tour, to report to senior authorities on the serious attack suffered by Equatorial Guinea on 24th December.
On 26th January it was the turn of the Ambassador from Spain before the Policy and Security Committee, Manuel Acerete, together with the Deputy Permanent Representative, Maria Lledo.
With Spain being one of the 28 member States of the EU and also Spanish speaking, like Equatorial Guinea, the Ambassador felt it necessary to report in detail on the failed terrorist attack against the stability of our country.
According to Nvono-Nca during the meeting, “the Equatoguinean intelligence services worked hard together with other countries, and it was this prevented in time. Specifically, thanks to the subsequent collaboration with African governments, such as Cameroon, it was possible to prevent this attempt”. Furthermore, the Ambassador stressed his surprise to those present “for the lack of an expression of solidarity from the EU by way of a communique”.
Manuel Acerete, for his part, remarked that the most important thing was “the need for human rights to be respected”, an affirmation that Nvono-Nca seconded.
